Pasta Amatriciana Recipe

I enjoy this recipe as it comes across as slightly different and healthier than buying spaghetti sauce in a jar. It does give you extra sauce. I like to add mushrooms and extra sausage to it. It is from the back of a Holland House Red Cooking Wine bottle. I have tried this with different wines. The cooking wine is the most affordable, however, I tasted a sip of it and thought it was very bad tasting. Definitely something you would not want to drink by itself. I have also tried it with cans of diced tomatoes and even plum tomatoes. I will stock up with the cans of tomatoes at the store. I have added canned tomatoes to rice in the rice cooker. This is a fairly quick recipe and the website cookingwine.com or mizkan.com has lots of similar recipes I am looking forward to trying.
