This got rave reviews from DH! I made a double batch. I tried to make it as close to the recipe as possible, but I just didn't have everything so I subbed: white onion for green and sauteed it with the garlic and herbs in the beginning of the recipe, omitted mushrooms because we dislike, did not add the sausage (because I made meatballs), and used half the amount of wine called for. I partially did this because it was an expensive wine, and I wanted to have enough left for us to drink with dinner :) I also forgot to put the water in, oops! so my sauce was thicker than it was supposed to be, but we like it thick so it was fine. Even at half the amount, there was plenty of wine in it to give a gorgeous flavor to the sauce. I will say, don't skimp and buy a cheap $2 bottle of wine. Get something nice, and have the rest of the bottle with dinner. Cook with the same wine you drink! I used one that was 50% each of Cab and Syrah and the flavor in the sauce was to die for. I would recommend sticking with a Cab, a Syrah, or a blend that is mostly cab. You could use a Merlot too, but a blend will add more complexity to the flavor. I will be making this for years to come... Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
