DIRECTIONS

  • In a large, deep skillet, over medium heat, heat olive oil.
  • Add bacon and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain grease.
  • Add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until onion is softened.
  • Break up ground sirloin and pork and add to skillet.
  • Cook until no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
  • Add half the wine and half of the beef broth.
  • Cook over medium-high heat until liquid is almost absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • Lower heat and stir in the tomato paste, salt, black pepper, parsley, and basil.
  • Pour in remaining wine and beef broth.
  • Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  • While sauce is simmering prepare tortellini according to package directions.
  • After sauce has simmered 20 minutes, stir in the heavy cream and heat through.
  • Spoon sauce over tortellini and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
  • {Note:I use a food processor to finely chop the bacon, onion, carrots, and celery for a smoother textured sauce, and to save an abundance of time}.
