This slow cooked Pappardelle Pasta with Wild Boar Ragu will literally melt in your mouth.

Traditional Pasta Recipe with Wild Boar Ragu

Wild board meat (diced)
Pappardelle Pasta
Red wine
White wine
3-4 branches of celery (with the leaves)
2 x carrots
Salt & pepper
Bay leaves
Homemade tomato sauce (2 x bottles of Passata)
Extra virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
5L of water

Large deep pot
Wooden spoon
1 x sieve

1. Mix the wild boar with red wine, bay leaves, pepper, oregano, carrot and onion and leave to marinate.
2. Heat up a generous amount of EVOO in a saucepan and add the boar in carefully, stirring it through.
3. After around 10 minutes add some roughly chopped pieces of carrot, celery and onion.
4. 2 minutes later, add the white wine and let it simmer.
5. Once the vegetables are tender and the wine starts to evaporate, add 2 x 750ml bottles of Passata and mix through.
6. Add a few branches of celery leaves and sprinkle a fair amount of salt though. Mix once again.
7. Turn the heat down to a very low heat and let the sauce simmer for 3.5-4 hours, stirring it every now and then.
8. Once this is cooked, boil up to 5L of water in a large pot and drop in the fresh pappardelle pasta.
9. Let it cook for 4-5 minutes and then strain it.
10. Have an extra saucepan on low heat with a spoonful of the sauce lining the bottom. Add the strained pappardelle pasta on top and mix the sauce through.

1. Serve it nice and hot….along with a few layers of pecorino or parmesan cheese…as much as you like of course

  1. I had this for the first time a few years ago in Florence. It really is one of the best dishes in all Italian cooking. I make a similar version of my own using Chianti instead of white wine.

  2. Capisco la necessità di farsi conoscere quindi parlare in inglese può essere una scelta giusta, ma non credo che serva a qualcosa, oltre l’italico paese, questi barbari se magnano la pasta con il ketchup, la pizza con l’ananas 🙂

  3. Vincenzon family 1st. If you can get wild boar you know this can make magic. I love your recipe, and you family too!
