  I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What Happened I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What HappenedSince both cooking spaghetti in tomato sauce and Martha Stewart's one-pot pasta hack turned out to be total failures, I had to see if the same was true for Food and Wine's spaghetti cooked in red wine.

The verdict is in, and all I can say is this fast and easy dish will no doubt be added to my regular dinner rotation.

"Honestly, it’s not so much the drink itself," Jordyn Taylor told Refinery29 via Twitter, "as the fact that (at least to me) it represents fun and friendship." Another woman said rosé represents "Girl time! Hanging with your besties, sipping on something delicious and refreshing!"

  How Much Wine Is in Your Food After You Cook It? An Expert Weighs In After years of swirling, sniffing, and swishing, you’ve (sort of) figured out what you like in a bottle of merlot. Now, you’re looking to kick things up a notch by jazzing up your dinner recipe with a splash of your favorite vino.

Van Bakergem said Pinknic's first year drew 8,000 people (all dressed in pink and white) over the course of two days; this year, they're expecting 16,000 people.
