    Wow. I made this exactly as directed, and it turned out amazing. (Well, I used gluten-free spaghetti instead of tortellini because I don't think they make gluten-free tortellini yet.) I was hesitant when I saw 2 CUPS of red wine because I usually don't use that much to deglaze, but it wasn't too much at all. It added the perfect amount of depth and complexity to the sauce and really harmonized with the beef and sausage. This was really easy to make too. Definitely a keeper.
