Pasta, pasta, and more pasta

Iconic Italian film actress, Sophia Loren, known for her incredible beauty and talent, famously said: “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti”. A champion of pasta, she’s also known for saying that, “I’d much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0”. We cannot agree more, especially now that we’re all spending some quality time at home.

Why not pour yourself a glass of wine while trying your hand at these recipes? Go on, we know you want to!

Napolitana

Try this Napolitana recipe by Woolworths’ TASTE, perfect for serving with penne pasta. It’s a treat with Nederburg’s Heritage Heroes The Motorcycle Marvel Rhône-style blend. This full-bodied Mediterranean red blend provides a richly fruited partner to the earthy and slightly sweet notes of the sauce.

Bolognese sauce

Or go for a classic Bolognese sauce, so satisfyingly good served with a generous helping of spaghetti. This recipe is easy and comes highly recommended by Food24.com. Savour it with none other than the popular Cabernet Sauvignon from Nederburg’s The Winemasters collection. This elegant and rich wine with notes of black and red fruit and delicate oak spice makes for a great partner to a classic dish.

Beef Ragù

Or what about a robust beef ragù sauce, such as this one suggested by Food & Home Entertaining? It also features gremolata, and is great with some tagliatelle pasta. In terms of wine, try it with Nederburg’s popular Baronne, a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The dark and juicy berry fruit and hint of vanilla in the wine bring out the robust savoury and juicy flavours of the beef ragù.
