Recipe Notes

  • Try any preferred dried herb in place of the thyme. Marjoram, oregano, rosemary, or sage are all good choices.
  • Wine Recommendation: Red pepper can be difficult to pair with wine as it accentuates the bitterness of the alcohol. So, bypass high-alcohol wines and try an herbal, light-bodied sauvignon blanc from Collio
