I love this dish when I’m in the mood to make comfort food. It offers onion, garlic and red wine … the Holy Trinity of flavorful Italian cooking. I use red wine because it makes many Italian dishes special, and be sure to choose marzano for the tomatoes. Got a big crowd coming over? Spaghetti with meat sauce is easy to double and it’s one of my favorite dishes to provide a family when they have just had a baby (be sure to double it so they can have leftovers).
