  • Summary

    Who knew that spaghetti cooked in red wine would be so good? This recipe, adapted from Mark Bittman, is really fun to make. It tastes great, too. The wine cooks into the pasta, developing a complex flavor and butter added at the end of cooking makes a silky smooth sauce. Use a wine that you enjoy and look for a dry red wine like Chianti or Zinfandel for the best deals.

    Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1 pound thin spaghetti
    • 2 cups dry red wine such as Chianti or zinfandel (about 3/4 bottle)
    • Salt and fresh ground pepper
    • 1/4 cup pistachios, toasted and roughly chopped
    • Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, for serving
