Wow, thats a really great and novel idea, for the sauce! I've never thought to try that, so I'm definitely intrigued. Next time I go to the store I'll have to pick up some marinara... I've been making large quantities of sauce homemade and then freezing it, but we're finally out!

And same for the sauce in place of broth. Sounds delicious!

I'll check back when I try these things... might be awhile cuz we're limited grocery store trips, but I can't wait to try them!

One of our quick and easy go-to meals almost every week is just pasta with marinara sauce out of a jar. I add any leftovers we have to it (last night it was half a baked acorn squash), then I use about a quarter to a a half cup of very dry red wine to rinse out the jar and get all the last bits of sauce out of it. It livens up the sauce very nicely!

As for the white, you can generally use white wine in place of almost any chicken broth any recipe calls for. Good luck and let us know what you decide to do and how it comes out! We love to hear the results of our "advice"! LOL!

Thank you! I think I will try that next time I make a pot roast. :D

Throw a splash of inexpensive but decent white on sauteed fish or chicken breasts. Or make pot roast in the crock pot with a sturdy red in the liquid.

I'm open to trying mushrooms... I didn't like them AT ALL for awhile, but little by little I've been trying them again. Not my favorite food, but if you prepare them right, they're really good!

Thanks for the suggestions!! I really appreciate it! :D

Do you like mushrooms? If so... there is NOTHING like sauteed mushrooms braised with wine... sooo earthy and delicious :) Add some fresh thyme too! mmm mmm mmm

braised garlic and chicken is good with white wine - it gives it a nice flavor.. there's a few recipes for that on cookinglight.com or eatingwell.com

Hey!

Was just wondering if anyone has some QUICK and SIMPLE ideas for cooking with wine!

I have a bottle of red wine and a bottle of white wine in my fridge... they're both kind of strong/dry, so I only drank about a glass or two and can't finish the rest of the bottle.

I was thinking of cooking something with it, so it doesn't go to waste.

Any ideas? Has to be QUICK AND SIMPLE because we're currently trying not to buy tons of groceries (eating out of the pantry) i.e. not tons of ingredients... trying to save every penny this month!
