Dave and I love this recipe and have prepared in many occasions. We made this dish on Sunday and  today we had the leftovers for lunch!  

  • 2  tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1  medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1  garlic clove, minced
  • 1  pound ground veal (1/2 kilo)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons small capers, rinsed
  • 3/4 pound orecchiette or the pasta you like
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil.

Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and cook over moderately high heat, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the veal, season with salt and pepper and raise the heat to high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veal is no longer pink and any liquid has evaporated, about 8 minutes.

Add the white wine to the skillet (sarten) and boil over high heat until nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock, thyme, rosemary and capers and simmer over moderate heat until the liquid is reduced by half, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the orecchiette in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain the pasta well and add it to the skillet along with the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, chopped parsley and butter. Cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thick and creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to bowls and serve right away.

Cooking tips: Add a bit of olive oil in the water to cook the pasta, this prevents the pasta from sticking together. Add 3 times more capers to give a better flavor.

    • Si, es sencillo de cocinar y tiene un sabor muy bueno. La clave es agregar suficientes alcaparras, la receta incluye una porcion pequeña, pero a nosotros nos gusta con muchas alcaparras.
