Ragu' Al Sardo (Sardinian Meat Sauce )

Total Time

I haven't tried this recipe yet. What attracted me the most was the use of saffron, since I'm a saffron addict. Also the recipe does not mention the servings, so if you make it, please z-mail me and let me know if I'm off with my guess.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion in olive oil over low heat until onion softens thoroughly. Add garlic and parsley and raise heat to moderate. Saute for 2 minutes.
  2. Add turkey, red pepper flakes and saffron and continue cooking. Break up meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until meat is cooked through but not brown.
  3. Add tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste and simmer partially covered for 25 minutes.

This was good. Very different from any meat sauce I have ever made before. I, also, love saffron and felt a pinch wasn't enough...at least not for me. Next time I will add a bit more. I cooked 1/2 pound of pasta and there was plenty of extra sauce to pass around.
