When this event came about I volunteered to take part right away! I didn’t care what day it was, I didn’t care what I had going on. This Momma is a big fan of wine, but I have to be honest, I don’t cook with it much, only when a recipe calls for it. Well you can’t count what I drink while I’m making dinner of course! It’s been quite the learning experience.

The #SundaySupper group has joined together for another amazing dinner. We have partnered up with Schlossadler Wines!! Some lucky winners even got sent some samples to cook with, even though I wasn’t chosen I knew I still wanted to be a part of this #SundaySupper. You have to take a look at their website, it’s pretty impressive.

Since this was such an important even for me (hello I got married at a vineyard remember!) I really wanted to make a Pasta recipe using wine. I don’t like a lot of red sauces so I found this recipe from Rachael Ray’s magazine that was for a White Ragu Sauce. Right up my ally guys!! WOW is all I have to say about this dish. Now the regular recipe called it to be made with a thicker spaghetti, however I decided to make it with Penne Rigate. Honestly, the only thing I would change about this recipe is that I would make it with the spaghetti!! Would have been easier to keep all of the yummy meat on my fork! I will be making this again because I had enough to freeze some. Yay Momma!

Cooking with wine (9)



  • 1 handful dried porchini mushrooms
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound spaghetti)
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1/4 Cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 pound ground turkey, patted dry
  • 1/3 pound bulk sweet italian pork sausage
  • 1 small carrot, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 small rib celery with leafy top, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 – 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

My first step when making a dish like this is always to prepare everything that your putting into it. I chopped my onion, celery, carrot and sage and got everything ready to add when I needed it.

Cooking with wine (2)

Heat the EVOO, 2 turns of a large skillet, over high heat until smoking. Stir in the turkey to brown slightly, then stir in the sausage, crumbling the meat. Add the carrot, celery, onion, garlic and sage; season generously with salt and pepper.

Cooking with wine (5)

Cover and cook the vegetables, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 minutes. This wasn’t the wine I used to cook, this is the wine I drank while cooking!

Stir in the wine to deglaze, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the tomato paste and broth, stir.

Cooking with wine (3)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. (I did this while the sauce was cooking.)Stir in the milk, add mushrooms and lower the heat to medium-high and cook to thicken. (this took me 30 min which was perfect time for the pasta.)

Cooking with wine (8)

Add the pasta and toss. Top with a liberal amount of cheese.
