Chicken Ragu Sauce Over Orecchiette

 

This is absolutely one of my favorite pasta sauces.  I make a traditional bolognese or ragu sauce frequently from ground beef and pork, but this sauce is very different.  I make it from chicken thighs, which I braise, remove from the pot and then shred, removing the meat from the bone.  The meat is then placed back into the sauce to cook further. It has a very full, rich flavor from the vegetables, broth, wine and the addition of tomato paste (I used my homemade estratto from this fall).  You can serve this over any pasta.  I like orecchiette ("little ears" in Italian) because it holds the sauce so well.  This is also great over homemade gnocchi.
