Braciole Pasta with Spare Ribs

Jaime Inez
If you're craving Italian comfort food, try Braciole Pasta with Spare ribs. This dish is a classic comfort food that combines the spiciness of grilled ribs with the rich flavor of tomato sauce. Traditionally, braciolaniste are made from thin slices of lean beef. They are usually top or bottom round roasts. This dish is often served with garlic breadcrumbs. It also has a tangy, savory filling made from a mixture of breadcrumbs, raisins, and pine nuts. The sauce is topped with Parmesan cheese and herbs to create the most succulent, flavorful ribs.

To avoid to much oil, drain the spare ribs first.
