Dinner in the winter - Spaghetti


Spaghetti and meatballs. Only the meatballs were made from ground beef from local, organically raised cows. The most tender, intensely beefy ground beef I've ever tasted. Wonderful. Rich marinara sauce is perfect in the winter, and of course, spaghetti cooked al dente. Simple, rustic food.



  1. Great photos (is this a Canon Rebel D-SLR with a special lens?) and awesome sounding dish! I would prefer to see the wine pairing in the same article. I would have thought Italian rather than a domestic Pinot.

  2. Thanks Iron! I use a Nikon D90, 50mm lens. The natural pairing would indeed be Italian - a simple sangiovese would be perfect. Alas, I've had too many experiences with poorly made, over-oaked Chianti to buy anymore with confidence. The theme for dinner was a comparison between Niagara versus Burgundy - a contrast in pinot noir styles.
