Heat oil over high heat in a large pot. Add the beef and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until browned.
Add 1 tbsp. of oil in another pot and reduce heat to medium low. Add garlic, onion, carrot and celery and sauté gently for 8 to 10 minutes.
Add cooked meat in pot with the sautéed vegetables. Turn heat up to high and mix. Bring to simmer, then turn the heat down to low so it is bubbling. Cover and cook for 2½ hours, stirring every hour.
Remove from heat and remove the lid.
To Serve
Bring a very large pot of salted water to a rapid boil. Add pasta.
Meanwhile, heat a large, deep fry pan over medium high heat. Add about 2½ cups of ragu, bring to simmer.
Use tongs to transfer pasta straight from the pot to sauce. Mix for 1 minute.
Serve with noodles on plate first, then adding beef mixture.
Top with Parmigiano-Reggiano or Parmesan cheese.
