A classic Bolognese sauce
In a mini prep or food processor, chop onion, celery, carrots and garlic together.
Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add vegetable mixture.
After veggies have softened (about 5 minutes), add meats. Using a wooden spoon break down chunks and sear on medium high heat. After about 5 minutes the meat should be almost cooked through.
Add salt, Italian seasoning, chili flakes and rosemary. Let simmer until the meat is browned.
Add milk and simmer until all the milk is absorbed. Add crushed tomatoes, broth, wine and brandy. Simmer on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Do not let mixture come to a boil.
When ready to eat, toss sauce with hot pasta. Top with parsley and Parmesan cheese.
