Now, 24 I face similar challenges. Yes, I can buy alcohol, but given that I recently moved out of my parent’s house, I no longer have that endless supply of wine to use as I please. I also use "endless" seriously. My parents are very Italian; We like wine. I'm also cheap, so if I'm forking out the cash for wine, you better believe I'm drinking it by myself on a Friday night. Needless to say, cooking with wine is still something I yearn for in my life. So when I get the chance, I "treat" myself to this ingredient.
Which brings me to my recipe. Hearty gnocchi with sautéed mushrooms, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, topped with fresh parsley and a sprinkle of feta cheese. It's also super quick to make if you happen to have gnocchi on hand. I quickly whipped this up today right after church.
