This was really wonderful. A great meal! I ommitted the red wine and added a couple of splashes of red wine vinegar instead. We thought it was delicious and I'll definitely make this again. thanks for sharing!

My favorite, and hubby begs for it too :) I cheat a bit though and just use ground beef and a jar of spaghetti sauce for the meat mixture .
