The fall and winter seasons are a wonderful time to enjoy venison. One of my preferred methods to prepare this gamey meat is in a ragù bianco. A ragù bianco is an Italian meat sauce without tomatoes and perfect for game meat and lamb.
If you are looking for an Italian pasta dish to make with your deer meat, I suggest giving this venison sauce a try!
