  1. In a small sauce pot, bring the cream up to a simmer and reduce by 1/3. About 6 tablespoons of cream should be remaining. In a sauce pot, saute the fatback over medium heat, about 8 minutes, or until almost all the fat is rendered. Stir in the carrots, celery, and onions. Sauté the vegetables for about 3 minutes or until the vegetables are translucent. Increase the heat and stir in the chuck and veal. Brown the meat for 5 minutes, or until the meat is medium brown in color. Stir in the wine, garlic and diluted tomato paste, and reduce the heat to very low. Cook partially covered for 2 hours. From time to time stir in a tablespoon or so of the milk, by the end of the two hours the milk should be incorporated. Stir in the reduced cream. Season with salt and black pepper. In a pot of boiling salted water, drop the fresh pasta. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from the water. Drain.

  2. Toss the pasta with the sauce and mound in the center of the platter. Garnish with grated cheese, parsley and serve with a loaf of bread.
