Smoked Mozzarella Agnolotti Bolognese

You know what they say: YOLO, so you might as well bolo as much as you can. OK, so maybe that’s not a real saying, but it should be! Because why wouldn’t you seize every possible opportunity to feast on bolognese?!

We often bolo with spaghetti-like bucatini or pillowy gnocchi, but tonight we’re partnering our signature tomatoey beef ragu with these gorgeous smoked mozz + basil-stuffed pasta pillows (aka agnolotti) from Deano’s. We hope you enjoy every last bite of your bowl-o 😉  

What’s in your bag:

  • Deano’s fresh smoked mozzarella +basil agnolotti
  • WECO beef bolognese
  • Little Leaf salad with shaved radish +fennel
  • Sherry vinaigrette

What you’ll need from home:

  • Large pot
  • Large saucepan
  • Strainer
  • Butter
  • Mixing bowl

Total prep time: 20 minutes

The Gnocchi Bolognese

  1. Get a big pot of water on the stove, and season well with salt (salty water is good water!) Bring to a boil.
  2. While the water heats, grab the saucepan and add a pat of butter. Pop it over medium heat ‘til the butter bubbles.
  3. Carefully pour the bolognese into the pan and heat until lightly simmering. When simmering, turn off heat.
  4. Back to the boiling water! Drop in the agnolotti and give them a stir to separate. Cook for 2-3 minutes until they float—test them for doneness—but should be no more!
  5. Reserve a cup of the pasta water and strain.
  6. Toss the agnolotti into the pan with the bolognese. Add a couple splashes of the reserved pasta water.
  7. Cook over low heat for a few minutes until the sauce clings to the agnolotti. Season with S+P as needed!

The Salad

  1. Throw the greens into a mixing bowl. Season with S + P.
  2. Drizzle the sherry vinaigrette over the top.
  3. Toss toss toss!

Okay, now for making it look pretty! Spoon your agno bolo into a shallow bowl. Spoon a little extra bolognese sauce all over (hey, you deserve it!). Serve your salad on the side, and start chowin’! 

Freezing your for later? No problem! Toss your containers of pasta and sauce in the freezer– when you’re ready to enjoy, pop them in the fridge for 24 hours (or until fully thawed) and follow the steps above

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
