I made this last night for dinner and did not change a thing. (except I had more like a pound of ground beef) It was very good, and had great flavor. Even I ate two helpings! Thanks!

I made this recipe for dinner last night. Didn't change a thing. I used pinot noir wine. The flavor was really good. It only needs to bake 20 mins. DH said he would love to have it again. This would be a great company meal, served with french bread and cesar salad. Thanks for posting this recipe. I did substitute ground turkey for the beef.
