One single ingredient always on hand in my increasingly dwindling seasoning collection, is the use of Publix Dry Golden Cooking Wine. This adds just enough zip to many sauce recipes. In fact, it gives food that quintessential after taste that makes you want to go back and indulge in a second helping. Try this recipe below and let me know how it turns out. You may want to send me a comment with your favorite recipe and I will include it in this blog. Feel free to experiment!
1 1/2 cans canned spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup Publix Dry Gold Cooking Wine (more if you like the taste)
1 tab. olive oil
1 cup of Frozen Seasoning Blend
1 pd. of ground meat
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. Italian seasoning blend
1 tsp. honey
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Put olive oil in sauce pan and fry with seasoning blend. Add meat after 1 minute and brown with salt and pepper. Add canned sauce, wine, Italian seasoning, and honey. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile put 2 quarts of boiling water on with 2 tab. oil, and 1 tab. salt. Add 1 pound of pasta and boil as per package instructions. Taste in between if you like noodles al dente. Drain, and rinse with cool water - just slightly to stop cooking. Add 1 tab. oil and 1/2 tsp. salt. Toss noodles to keep them from sticking.
Ladle a scoop of noodles onto your family's plates and top with a scoop of sauce. Leave parmesan cheese out on the table so that each member can top the desired amount onto their pastas. Wait till you try it!
