I could hardly wait to taste this pot roast the first time I made it and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Seasoned with a light blend of Italian spices and then cooked in red wine, served with Baby Red Potatoes and Roasted Green Beans this roast is happily eaten by every member of the family.

I’ve been making this Red Wine Roast Beef for a few years now and it never fails to impress. This recipe was originally inspired by a recipe I found over at allrecipes.com. I’ve simplified it over time and the whole family enjoys it.

The aroma, while it cooks, is almost as amazing as the resulting meat. I could eat this roast beef every week all year long with no complaints.

Red Wine Roast Beef

What really makes this Italian roast beef recipe stand out is the red wine that it cooks in. I use a dry red like cabernet or a merlot to fill this roast with delicious flavor. (Not a big wine drinker? I buy these tiny bottles of wine and stash them in the pantry. I use one small bottle each time we make this roast recipe.)

The red wine gives this meat a whole extra dimension of taste. It tastes better than any roast beef I’ve had at a restaurant but is incredibly simple and easy to make. This is a standard dinner time main dish for us by now but we never ever get tired of eating it.

I first made this pot roast with red wine by baking it in the oven. The meat was perfectly tender and fell apart on the fork easily. I had a feeling the recipe would work well in the slow-cooker, too and I was right.

While this just might be the easiest pasta recipe I’ve ever made, it’s also one of my favorites for flavor. I eat this pasta hot, cold, room temperature, it’s fantastic however you serve it.

With just a few ingredients, you can mix up a batch of marinated tomatoes in the morning, let them rest on the counter or in the fridge for the day, then toss the tomatoes with pasta for dinner.

This is delicious right after it’s stirred together, but it only gets better after spending a while in the fridge. I’ve found I like the leftovers even more than when first made.

So, take my advice and make the full recipe. The pasta will keep nicely for a few days and can be eaten cold for easy lunches or warmed up for a hot meal too.

With some sliced grilled chicken added to the pasta, this is a hearty dinner the whole family enjoys. I typically stir together the pasta and tomatoes as a pasta salad and store it in the fridge.

When I’m ready for dinner, I combine the pasta and chicken in the skillet and warm it up for a quick minute. You can even toss in a couple of handfuls of baby spinach or some sauteed mushrooms.

A sprinkling of Parmesan is another great way to finish the recipe. With this tomato pasta tucked in the fridge, you have endless dinner options at your fingertips.
