During our last recent visit with family we learned that even though our normal recipes yield plenty of leftovers for us, they are not nearly enough to feed 3 additional adults. So we have been playing with some of our favorite recipes & creating new ones with the idea of making more than enough for guests. This means that we end up with a whole lot more leftovers- however that really comes in handy when we are getting home late from swim team & the gym. One thing we really like to make for guests is pasta which is part of our Easy Family Dinner Ideas. It’s quick, simple & goes a long way in bulk. It’s great to gather around the table with a bowl of goodness & add a little glass of wine & fellowship with our guests. One of our new favorites is this Angel Hair Pasta in Burgundy Garlic Sauce.
The special 1.5L bottle of Hearty Burgundy is perfect for entertaining in large groups.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Gallo’s Hearty Burgundy, America’s first truly iconic Red Blend. To celebrate the Golden Anniversary of Hearty Burgundy, Gallo Family Vineyards has produced a limited edition bottle that pays homage to the original flavor profile that first brought Americans into wine in the 1960’s and 70’s. I used this Hearty Burgundy in this recipe.

Hearty Burgundy was the favorite wine of Gallo’s founders Ernest and Julio. The brothers originally made the wine as an ode to the wines they enjoyed in Italy gathered around the dinner table with family and friends sharing great food and conversation. As its name suggests, Hearty Burgundy pairs well with a variety of hearty foods, including chili, Italian meat and hard cheeses.
