So I know I only blogged about this like a few days ago... but I just HAD to try making myself some Drunken Pasta! I searched online for a couple of good recipes, but when it finally came down to game time, I settled for whatever I had in my fridge.
Started with a bottle of Two Buck Cabernet, and a package of spaghetti. I feel like had I made it with Angel hair, the pasta would have cooked faster & retained some of the alcohol-y goodness, but with the spaghetti, it definitely was all cooked out. That said it did absorb the color, and turned a gorgeously hued red plum. Into the pot I poured 2 cups of water, 2 cups of wine, a tablespoon of olive oil & a couple of pinches of salt.
Another thing to watch out for... as the pasta boiled and splashed, I had lovely little red-wine dots all over my stove-top. I was constantly wiping it down.
I dressed it with some fresh tomatoes, shaved Parmesan, olive oil & lemon juice. In the end, it actually tasted best chilled... absolutely a summer dish!
