Feedfeed Tip When zesting lemons, be sure to avoid the white pith which can impart a bitter taste. You just want the bright yellow zest for the best flavor.

Pea tendrils may still be tricky to find this time of year, so feel free to substitute with arugula or spinach.

Red Wine Pasta with Pine Nuts, Feta, and Parsley by @ali_rosen

This pasta cooks in a whole bottle of wine! Don't feel like you need to spend a lot on the wine, and if you prefer your could use chicken stock instead.

Feedfeed Tip We are big fans of this one pot pasta method! If you prefer white wine or happen to have that on hand, feel free to substitute. 
 
Weekend Bonus
Feedfeed Pinot Noir Soaked Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Yep, you read that right. These chocolate covered berries are soaked overnight in wine so they handle chocolate & wine cravings all in one go. However, if you are short on time feel free to skip the soak.
