  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the vegetables in the olive oil until the onions are translucent. Add the rosemary and sage. Add the sausage, pancetta, and beef. Cook until the juices run off, breaking apart with a fork.
  2. Add the wine and cook for a few minutes until slightly reduced. Add 1 cup of the broth, the bay leaf and black pepper. Cover and cook over low heat for an hour, adding some more broth along the way. Towards the end, add the basil and the remaining broth if the mixture seems dry.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain it and remove to a serving bowl. Mix in some of the ragu. Serve immediately, topped with a large spoonful of the ragu and a sprinkle of Parmigiano.
