How An Italian Makes Ragu

(Translated into English, but dictated from a real live Italian. You have translate the measurements.)
Chop an onion, a clove of garlic, a carrot, and a stick of celery. Roast in olive oil. When they are well roasted, add about 1/2 a kilo of ground beef. Stir well and add salt and pepper. Add half a glass of white or red wine. When the wine is evaporated, add two cans of crushed tomatoes. Cook on low (as low as possible!) for at least two or three hours. DO NOT ADD WATER. If it cooks slowly enough, you won't need water. (The "Do Not Add Water" was very emphatic.)
