Step by Step Method
TO MAKE MEAT SAUCE
Heat butter and oil in a 4 quart saucepan. Add onion, carrot and celery; cook until tender.
Add meats. While cooking, break up meat with a fork; cook until brown. Drain off fat.
Stir in pepper, tomato sauce, and 1/2 cup white wine and beef broth; simmer, covered for approximately 1 hour.
Trim fat from prosciutto and place fat in a 10-inch skillet.
Cook over low heat until fat is rendered, leaving any brown bits that remain in pan (adds good flavor).
Add mushrooms to fat in skillet; cook until just colored, adding a little butter if necessary.
Cut prosciutto into julienne strips. Add prosciutto and remaining wine to skillet; simmer for 5 minutes.
Stir prosciutto mixture into meat sauce.
TO PREPARE BECHAMEL
Melt butter over low heat in a 2-quart saucepan. Blend in flour with a wire whisk; cook for 1 minute.
Add milk gradually, stirring constantly.
Once blended, cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat.
Add pepper and nutmeg.
Blend bechamel sauce into meat sauce with a wire whisk.
Cook fettucine according to package directions; drain. Reheat sauce.
For each serving use 2/3 cup sauce and toss fettucine with sauce in a large bowl or tureen to coat well.
Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese and a little freshly ground pepper over each serving.
