Tomato isn't the only ingredient that can turn your pasta a scrumptious red; this red wine linguine takes advantage of the visible and flavorful richness of a favorite beverage, coming together as a unique Italian recipe.

Real Simple's instructions call for half a bottle of your chosen chianti or valpolicella. You cook the noodles and then simmer them in the luscious grape alcohol until it's completely absorbed, picking up those wonderful antioxidants so you can boast about your healthy supper. No sauce is necessary, and the amount of oil is up to you, making the red wine linguine a lighter dish. For extra umph, shave some Romano cheese on top, and discover the pleasure of a beautiful back-to-the-basics meal.
