An earthy red, such as pinot noir, is the wine traditionally used in Burgundy, where the classic time-consuming stew was born. Serve the dish with mashed potatoes, as the recipe directs, or opt for pappardelle pasta, if you prefer.
The way I dress up leftover ham and mashed potatoes is a surefire success in my house! Cheddar cheese and cream add richness to this casserole while garlic seasons it nicely. It's something my family looks forward to having on a regular basis.
