We just finished eating this for dinner. It was very good, although mine did not thicken up at all and I thought it had an overwhelming taste of wine (maybe it was the kind that I used?) so I think next time I make this I'll just use 1 cup of wine instead of 1 1/2. Overall, I thought it was very easy and good! Also, I got most of the ingredients at Aldi :) Thanks for the recipe!
