The Genius Way to Make Pasta Without Water

A few months ago we figured out that you could cook spaghetti in red wine and it totally changed Italian night in our house. Our newest wine-infused-pasta discovery? This Paprika White Wine Bucatini recipe from the gorgeous blog I Will Not Eat Oysters. Now we’re drooling.
