Braised Rabbit With Egg Noodles

Braised Rabbit With Egg Noodles

Ingredients:

  • 1 (2 1/2- to 3 1/2-pound) rabbit, cut into 8 serving pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, halved lengthwise and then cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 (4- by 1-inch) strips fresh orange zest
  • 1 (3- to 4-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 2 Turkish bay leaves or 1 California
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes (from a 28-oz can)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 ounces dried egg tagliatelle or egg fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Special equipment: a deep 12-inch ovenproof skillet (preferably with a lid) or a 5-quart wide heavy pot
Method:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Pat rabbit pieces dry and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then brown rabbit in 2 batches, turning over once, about 6 minutes per batch. Transfer as browned to a plate.

Reduce heat to moderate and cook onions, garlic, zest, cinnamon stick, and bay leaves in remaining 2 tablespoons oil, stirring frequently, until onions are beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add wine and deglaze skillet by boiling, stirring and scraping up any brown bits, until wine is reduced by about half, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, water, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Nestle rabbit pieces in sauce and bring to a simmer.

Cover skillet tightly with lid or heavy-duty foil, then braise in middle of oven 30 minutes. Turn rabbit over and continue to braise, covered, until rabbit is tender, 25 to 30 minutes more.

While rabbit is braising, cook pasta in a large pot of until al dente. Drain pasta well in a colander and transfer to a large platter. Discard zest, cinnamon stick, and bay leaf from sauce. Arrange rabbit over pasta, then spoon sauce over top and sprinkle with parsley.
