First, prepare the ground meat substitute. In a pot, heat up 1 tbsp. olive oil and sauté the bacon for 2-3 minutes until brown. Transfer the bacon to a plate.
Add another 3 tbsp. olive oil and saute the ground beef for 6-7 minutes, until brown. Break it into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon and add salt and pepper.
Add the onion, carrot and celery and sauté for 4-5 minutes.
Add the garlic and tomato paste and sauté for 1 minute. Put the bacon back in the pot, stir and pour in the wine. When most of the alcohol has evaporated, add the grated tomatoes and sugar and lower the heat. Allow the ground beef to cook for about 20 minutes until the sauce thickens.
At the same time, prepare the pasta. Fill a large pot with 5 liters of water and cook on high heat.
Once the water starts boiling, add 35 g salt and the MISKO Risoni Large. Stir with a spoon and let the pasta boil for as long as indicated on the package.
Strain the risoni and sprinkle with 2 tbsp. olive oil. Stir gently and leave the pasta aside until it is time to serve.
Serve the risoni with some spoonfuls of ground beef and grated Pecorino cheese.
