Simon Gault's Helluva Good Spag Bol with Matariki 2010 Nōble

Simon Gault's Helluva Good Spag Bol with Matariki 2010 Nōble

Much excitement in the office when Simon Gault’s enews arrived this week titled “Helluva good Spag Bol”, we knew immediately (yes someone is a little obsessed with Spag Bol) what was on the menu this week for the Matariki Food Series. And Simon was right this is the ultimate Spaghetti Bolognaise. Do try the chicken livers you will be pleasantly surprised – they add depth to the dish. You can add 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes to the sauté mix when adding Italian Seasoning for a spicy Spag Bol. And what to drink with this family favourite, well when you read the recipe you’ll see the first reason we chose Matariki 2010 No’ble, but when we were trying the wines (our job is tough I know) it was a fantastic match to the dish.
