Ingredients

    Canned Tomatoes, 2 cans, pureed
    Garlic, 3 tsp, minced or chopped
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    Garlic powder, 3 tbsp
    Oregano, ground, 1 tbsp
    Basil, 2 tbsp
    Thyme, ground, 1 tbsp
    Riunite Lambrusco, 1/4 cup
    Rice Noodles, 3 cup
    Water, tap

Tips

Riunite Lambrusco: This is a wine that has a fantastic flavor when concentrated or added to sauces, and the slight sweetness of the wine eliminates the need for adding a pinch of sugar to the sauce.

Adding pasta water to sauce: This serves to slightly thicken the sauce, eliminating the need for tomato paste; helps the sauce stick to the noodles; and marries the flavors of the sauce and noodles. The starch in the water has been accounted for in the calorie count.

Cooking noodles in the sauce: this finishes cooking the noodles, allowing them to soak up some of the sauce flavor, creating a more robust and flavorful dish.


Directions

In large wok, cook olive oil and minced garlic over low heat. Fill pot with regular tap water, bring to boil.

Slowly add pureed tomatoes to wok, incorporating garlic-infused oil. Add garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, and dried thyme to taste. Add about a 1/4 cup of Riunite Lambrusco (semi-sweet red wine). Continue cooking sauce in wok on low.

Add package of rice spaghetti noodles to boiling water with salt. Cook at a boil, stirring occasionally, approx 8 minutes. Turn off burner, but do not drain.

Add 1-2 ladles full of pasta water to simmering sauce, incorporating thoroughly. Once incorporated, add the noodles to the sauce in the wok, tossing to coat. Cook pasta for approx. 5 more minutes over low before serving.

Serving Size: Makes approx. 8 servings
