Pomì Tomato Sauce 6 cups
Place a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 325°F.
Generously season the ribs with salt and pepper. In a 7- to 8-quart Dutch oven or heavy-duty pot, heat 2 Tbs. olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear half of the ribs, without crowding them, on the three meaty sides, about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to a glass plate or large bowl. Add 2 Tbs. oil to the pan, and repeat with the remaining ribs.
Add the onion, celery and carrots and sauté until the vegetables are just tender, stirring constantly about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Cook for another 15 seconds, until the spices are aromatic, add the wine to deglaze, then add the tomatoes and bring to a boil.
Return the ribs to the pot, place a crinkled piece of parchment on the surface of the ribs and sauce, cover with the lid, and place in the oven for 4 to 4½ hours, until the ribs are tender and just beginning to fall off the bone. Remove the ribs and keep warm. Remove any excess oil from the surface. Bring the sauce to a boil.
In a small bowl, combine the pine nuts, parsley, and lemon zest. Serve the ribs with some of the sauce and top with some of the pine nut mixture.
