Chianti pairs well with this classic sauce. A Zinfandel from California would be an American alternative.
Used ground bison and chicken Better than Boullion instead of stock because they were what I had on hand. I used up the regular tomato paste I had and wanted a little more tomato flavor so added a few teaspoons of sun-dried tomato paste that was handy, not very intense on its own. Very delicious. Hard to go wrong with that much bacon and cream with chewy pasta. Also can't beat an indulgent, delicious meal made up entirely of pantry/fridge/freezer staples. It's going on the list.Read More
Made this last night, it was delicious! I did make a few adjustments as well. I used slightly more bacon, a full 1lb of beef, 2/3 cups of wine (could have prob done a spot more), A little over 1 cup of broth (I used chicken because I already had it opened), 3 tblspns of paste, and I used 3 small cloves of garlic (could have def done a couple more). We also used tagliatelle pasta instead of spaghetti, which I highly recommend.Read More
This was amazingly delicious and easy. I made it with penne and increased amounts of bacon, ground pork, tomato paste, wine, beef broth, and seasonings. Delicious!Read More
