I have been waiting weeks to share this recipe with you guys! Ever since I made homemade ricotta gnocchi with red wine ragu on my FlavCity Instagram stories, you have been sending messages wanting to know when the recipe will be posted.
The time has come my friends, and I am happy to share this post as a collaboration with my buddies over at Austerity Wine and The FeedFeed. We’re showing you a fall showstopper of a dish that features pinot noir wine from Austerity. Not only is it fantastic to pair with this meal, but it’s one of the essential ingredients that make this ragu spectacular.
The ripe red fruit flavors of the Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir pairs perfect with the rich meaty flavors of the ground beef and the floral taste of the fresh herbs. You can also use Austerity Cabernet Sauvignon wine for this recipe and it will be top notch.
Homemade ricotta gnocchi could be the easiest pasta ever to make. It just requires a few ingredients and best of all, you don’t even need a pasta machine. It’s best to make this recipe with a few friends because it not only makes the pasta making go quicker, but it’s really fun.
Just don’t be in a hurry with this recipe. The ragu needs to cook for 3 hours, so think of this recipe as a Sunday supper type of meal, and make sure to save some pinot noir to enjoy while making the ragu, a little for the pot, a little for the chef. ?
