Hoo Hoo Hooo, who here is looking for something a little more.... umm lets just say .... a little more exquisite for their dinner or if you have had a really hard day lunch? Here we have a very simple and easy vermouth infused red sauce topped off with some extra pine nuts for an extra crunch. 

If you haven't heard of Vermouth before, it is a fortified wine.... so this recipe isn't recommended for children or those who can't drink. Vermouth generally has a very sweet, aromatizing and addicting flavour, making it perfect for drinking and for making into a lovely sauce too. Might I recommend Hotel's Starlino Rosso Vermouth for this recipe.

This dish will take you no longer than 15 minutes to whip up. A quick and simple sweet, savoury, aromatic and umm powerful sauce that is sure to get you into a better mood after one bite. What are you waiting for? Let's dive right into making this!
