- 1 bottle red wine, such as a Pinot Noir
- ½ pound dried spaghetti
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 large shallot, halved, thinly sliced into strips
- 3 large cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 Belgian endives, cut into thin strips
- ¼ cup white wine
- ½ cup vegetable stock
- 6 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup gorgonzola cheese
- Salt and pepper
1. In a pot of salted water, about 2 quarts, pour in bottle of red wine. Bring to a boil and drop in spaghetti.
2. While pasta cooks, heat a large pan with olive oil on medium high heat. Add the shallots and garlic, and cook for 3 minutes to soften. Then add endive and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Deglaze with white wine and vegetable stock. Reduce by half, then swirl in butter until it melts and forms a sauce.
4. After spaghetti has cooked to preferred doneness, drain and add pasta to the sauce pan. Toss together until sauce coats pasta and crumble cheese on top.
