A must have recipe for the lazy budget stricken chef. This is good by itself or on the side with a salad and grilled meat or portabellas. Use leftover wine its much easier. If you dont like food with acid add some sugar to this when you simmer sauce. A herb mixture such as Italian herbs, herbes de Provance or La Garrigue can replace thyme and tarragon. This is very fragrant and flavorful.
