Are you craving for an elegant but easy and fast meal? You are in the right place because listed below are some easy wine and dinner recipes you can whip up:
Pasta Puttanesca and Barbera
Pasta Puttanesca is an Italian dish from Naples. Naples is known for its elegant wine meals. This pasta dish has a lot of savory flavors such as capers, anchovies, and olives.
Barbera’s acidity is perfect for the acidity of the tomatoes from the pasta. The salty taste from Pasta Puttanesca balances the high acid content of the wine. It is a perfect dinner date since the dried herb and cherry flavors complement the simplicity of the pasta.
Southwest Sweet Potatoes and Zinfandel
With some pantry staples, spices, seasonings, and sweet potatoes, you can throw in this southwestern-inspired dish. The best drink to pair this with is Zinfandel. It is a red wine with a bold flavor that matches southwestern cuisine and barbecue foods.
The tannins and full-body flavor of the Zinfandel are great with the richness of the sweet potatoes without subduing the flavors. The jam taste of the wine also matches the sweetness and smokiness of the sweet potatoes and spices.
