Instructions pasta with cod ragout

  • Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into the large pan. Add onion, celery and carrot cut into very small cubes. Turn on the flame and cook over medium-low heat until the vegetables become tender.

As soon as the ragout comes to a boil, lower the heat, cover with the lid leaving a small gap for the steam and cook for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally while the sauce becomes thicker, taste and adjust with more salt if necessary.
