Red Wine, Mixed Nut, and Parsley Pasta

My New Years resolution for 2013 was to make 100 new meals. So when I got to meal #100, I knew it had to be something good. I saw this recipe a few weeks ago and was blown away.  Pasta... boiled in WINE?! What?! I had to try it. Let me say, this was insanely delicious. I had two friends over for dinner and they both gobbled it down as well. And it was kind of fun to eat purple pasta. If you like wine, and if you like pasta, you will be in heaven!!

  • 5 c. water
  • 3 1/4 c. red wine (almost one bottle)
  • 3/4 pound spaghetti
  • Sea salt

  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 c. chopped parsley
