Greek pasta

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Vicki in AZ

Nice twist to a simple pasta dish. So easy! I can see doing this for a big crowd with a great bread, huge salad and grilled veges. I had this last night at a friend's. She thinks she got it out of a fairly recent issue of Bon Appetit, but can't verify because she hand wrote it on an envelope.

We really liked this. It was a good mix of sweet (from the cinnamon & cloves) along with a little heat from the cayenne pepper. Very tasty. I think next time, I'll try a little sweeter wine, just for our own preference. All in all, it was a very easy recipe to make and 3 out of 4 kids gave it a thumbs up (and you can add my own thumbs up to that statistic...) Thank you for sharing!
