Italian Drunken Noodles

My hubby and I had trouble walking back to the kitchen after eating this Italian Drunken Noodles. Blame it on the deliciousness!

Italian Drunken Noodles, also known as ‘Frà Diavolo’, is a delightful and fiery pasta dish that originated in the beautiful coastal regions of southern Italy. Bursting with bold flavors, this recipe combines beef with garlic and splash of wine. It is said that this dish gets its name from the idea that the pasta soaks up the flavors of the wine, making it “drunk” with deliciousness. Perfect for both special occasions and casual gatherings, Italian Drunken Noodles will bring a taste of Italy straight to your table.
This recipe can be served on its own as the star of the meal or accompanied by complementary sides. A fresh green salad with a tangy vinaigrette pairs well with the bold flavors of the dish and provides a refreshing contrast. Alternatively, you can serve it with a side of crusty garlic bread for indulging in every last drop of the savory sauce. Don’t forget to have a chilled glass of white wine or a cold beer on hand to balance the spiciness and enhance the overall experience.
