"A good meal must be as harmonious as a symphony and as well-constructed as a Norman cathedral." ~Fernand Point
Even the simplest of suppers, when brought together just right, can prove a melodious tune. Case in point: a very easy dish to make in large quantities and freeze, this hearty meat sauce was a breeze to make (and consume!) and had me humming and dancing around the room
before and after its completion. :)
I started by sauteeing a chopped, large onion, several cloves of minced garlic and half-pound of sliced crimini mushrooms in olive oil. (A bell pepper would also be a great addition.) Then, I browned a pound of ground beef in the same pan.
Classico makes a wonderful Cabernet Marinara sauce which I added last to the pan and allowed to simmer for about 20 minutes.
I served it over spaghetti with some freshly grated parmesan, accompanied by steamed zucchini seasoned with salt and pepper.
This Pinot Noir in Robert Mondavi's Private Selection created a perfect harmony in this dinner orchestra.
