Recipe Thursday: Lagrein and Late Summer "Bolognese"

Cauliflower has reigned supreme when it comes to carb replacements. First it was the cauliflower rice craze – even Trader Joe’s had to implement a two-bag limit per person. Then came Oprah’s cauliflower crust pizzas. Now enter the cauliflower gnocchi from Trader Joe’s that is invading everyone’s Instagram feeds. It couldn’t come at a better time, as we head into fall and get ready to saddle up to cozy comfort foods. A Cozy Kitchen has the perfect recipe to give cauliflower gnocchi a try:  Late Summer Veggie “Bolognese” with Cauliflower Gnocchi. Loaded with vegetables, this “Bolognese” isn’t your typical meaty variety, but is still bursting with rich, umami flavor.

For a deeply flavored dish like vegetable “Bolognese,” you’ll want a full-bodied wine that can stand up to the complex flavors and textures, such as Cesconi’s Pletter. Full of plummy, earthy and chewy notes, this red Italian wine is made up of 100 percent Lagrein -- a natural fit for a warm and cozy dinner.
