Owners and husband/wife duo, Gina & Jake of Sans Wine Co., the organic canned wine company based in Napa Valley, have paired a very special family recipe with their first ever bottled wine - Carignan.
This recipe is for Grandma Marlene’s Christmas Eve Pasta Casserole. Marlene (Spadafore) Schober was Gina’s Grandma and Christmas Eve was HER holiday - she looked forward all year long to Christmas Eve.
Her ancestry is Southern Italian and this is a great family recipe to prepare for the holidays. Enjoy!
