The Gallo family believes that one of the reasons they have stayed strong as a family business for over 75 years is their love of sitting down together to share good food, wine and conversation.  Many meals have been enjoyed, some from old Italian family recipes and some more contemporary Californian in style. This recipe was created by one of the first employees at the Winery and has been a favorite of the Gallo family for years.

Ingredients:
  • Spaghetti, 1 lb.
  • Tomato Paste, 4 cans (6oz. ea.)
  • Plump Tomatoes, 2 cans (14.5oz. ea.)
  • Ground Round Steak, 2 lbs.
  • Ground Pork, ½ lb.

  • Cheese, Parmesan
  • Basil

Dungeness Crab has everything a chef loves - sweet, salty, rich, but also light - all at the same time. An incredibly versatile ingredient, crab has the enviable ability to work well with many other components. Chef Hoffman prefers to pair this dish with étoile Brut.
