Heat butter and olive oil in skillet. Add beef. Add carrots, onion, celery, and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent.

Add 1/2 the basil and bay leaf. Pour in red wine, allow to reduce. Add broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for one hour. Finish with heavy cream and remaining basil. Serve over pasta and top with cheese.
