At A Casa di Nonna restaurant in Pula within the South of Sardinia I loved Fregola al ragù di pecora con vino rosso, which is fregula/fregola with a mutton ragù with pink wine. Fregula is a Sardinian model of couscous, which is extra coarse than common couscous. With the bits of floor mutton at about the identical dimension, this makes for a really good texture of the dish. Since I had discovered a supply for mutton in Netherlands, I’m making a sequence of mutton dishes. You can additionally make this with beef or lamb and it received’t be as particular, however nonetheless excellent. Right here is my model of this straightforward however tasty dish. There may be solely a little bit of tomato on this ragù and I’ve used two varieties of tomato: sundried tomatoes and contemporary uncooked tomato. I nonetheless had some mutton inventory in my freezer from after I made Zuppa Gallurese.
