    echo echo's Note:

    A nice hearty well seasoned beef-wine sauce to serve over pasta. I generally use Merlot for the wine because that's my favorite and I can serve the rest of the bottle with dinner. Sometimes I add another vegetable if I have one on hand, such as sliced mushrooms, peas or green beans.

      This is great! My red wine of choice was Shiraz. I also used diced tomatoes instead of whole along with dried oregano. Those are my only changes. yummy dish. I used elbow macaroni cuz that's what the dish was crying out for. :) This has a nice touch of sweetness, just what I like!
