This Red Wine Pasta Will Blow Your Mind

Trine Jensen-Burke

Who doesn’t love pasta? And red wine?

I know! So imagine our joy when we came across this recipe combining our two favourite things.

Julia Child famously used to say, “I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food I’m cooking!”And with this dish, you can really enjoy a little of both. And everything.

Say hello to your new favourite spaghetti dish:
