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.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lb ground sirloin or 1 lb ground turkey
- 2 large onions, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1⁄3 cup dry red wine
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 8 ounces penne or 8 ounces rigatoni pasta
- freshly grated parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper
- Heat oil in heavy large pot over high heat.
- Add meat and onions and saute until brown and season with salt and pepper.
- Reduce heat to medium and add cinnamon, cayenne and cloves and saute 5 minutes.
- Add wine, tomatoes and tomato sauce and simmer until thick.
- Better if it sits overnight and is rewarmed.
- Serve over cooked pasta.
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!
Sorry, I just didn't think it was anythingspecial. It reminded me of cincinnati chili because of the spices. I did appreciate the use of cayenne. But I won't be making this again.
I served this to my parents who were visiting and they were very impressed...can't wait to try this myself.
