From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
For this comforting dish, you'll make an Italian-style meat sauce (or bolognese, in reference to the city of Bologna where it originated) with earthy mushrooms, rich pancetta, dry-aged beef, and sweet tomatoes. To finish, you'll fold in tender ravioli filled with five types of cheese: ricotta, asiago, mozzarella, provolone, and parmesan.

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Place the tomatoes in a bowl; gently break apart with your hands.

2 Start the bolognese

In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pancetta, beef, and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the beef apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Add the mirepoix (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), tomato paste, sliced mushrooms, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are softened and the pancetta and beef are cooked through.

Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and worcestershire sauce. Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any browned bits (or fond), 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add the crushed tomatoes (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat.

5 Finish the ravioli & serve your dish

To the pan of finished bolognese, add the cooked ravioli, spinach, cream (shaking the packet before opening), and half the reserved ravioli cooking water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the spinach is wilted and the ravioli are coated (if necessary, gradually add the remaining cooking water to ensure the ravioli are thoroughly coated). Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished ravioli garnished with the parmesan. Enjoy!
