I’ve been willing to make this pasta for a while now: Red Wine Spaghetti, but they also call it Drunken Pasta. Yes, the pasta get drunk (but you don’t!) because it literally cooks in wine and takes a beautiful purple colour.
- 200 g of spaghetti
- 2 garlic cloves
- evo oil
- 20 cl of red wine
- parmesan cheese
- chili pepper flakes (optional)
- salt, pepper
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. In the meantime, heat oil, garlic and chili pepper in a skillet on low heat for about 5 minutes.
Pour wine in the skillet and increase heat to medium heat.
Add pasta to boiling water and cook only for 5 minutes. Drain well then add the pasta to the skillet. Allow the pasta to finish cooking and absorb the wine for a few more minutes. Pasta should be al dente. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
