This skillet dinner is simple in preparation but amazing in flavor! It smells incredible as it sizzles in your skillet, and pairs perfectly with a nice glass of red or white wine. Speaking of wine, have you heard of Holland House Cooking Wines and Vinegars? Their Red Cooking Wine is a particular favorite of mine, because I can use a splash and cap it up to use for later. Saves me from having to uncork a whole bottle of red, just to have it spoil on my countertop. This red cooking wine gives incredible flavor, just like a drinking dry red wine, to many of the skillet meals I sizzle up for dinner!

I know you will absolutely love this easy, wholesome weeknight meal. You may already have all of the ingredients on hand. Try it tonight, and please let me know how you enjoy it!

  1. This pasta skillet is my perfect meal! So warm and comforting but also quick. Pinning!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
    and was curious what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
