  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Saute onions, celery, carrots and garlic until tender, about 10 minutes. Increase heat to high and add veal, pork, sausagemeat and pancetta; cook until meats are evenly brown.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, chicken stock, milk, parsley, basil and thyme. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 2 1/2 hours; stir occasionally, breaking up tomatoes with spoon as you stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add fettuccine and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  4. Serve fettuccine topped with the sauce and Parmesan cheese.
