Who says pasta dishes have to be pale? Try cooking spaghetti in red wine for a brilliantly colored and flavorful dish.

Ingredients

1
teaspoon salt
1
package (16 oz) thin spaghetti
3
tablespoons butter
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2
cups dry red wine (such as Chianti or Zinfandel)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4
to 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  • 1 Heat large pot of water to boiling; add 1 teaspoon salt and the spaghetti. Cook just until spaghetti begins to bend easily, about 5 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Cook garlic and pepper flakes in butter 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine; heat to simmering.
  • 3 Drain spaghetti, reserving cooking water. Add spaghetti to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until spaghetti is al dente (add some of the reserved cooking water, if desired). Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter; stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 4 Sprinkle individual servings with 1 to 2 tablespoons cheese.
Tips  

Serve this as a meatless meal for 4 or as a side for 6 to 8 people.

Shredded Parmesan cheese can be substituted for the feta.

When buying red wine for this dish, choose one that’s on the drier side, but still has some fruitiness to it.
