 We have had a rash of abnormally warm weather this winter which is making things hard between my slow cooker and me. I would normally love this time of year, all of the slow cooker recipes, hearty and thick meals. Gotta put on my winter weight and all, right?

But unseasonably warm days have me walking around with no need for those heavy winter coats craving the smoke and fire of the grill. I want burgers, steak, corn on the cob and other summer time foods. It takes recipes like short ribs with red wine sauce to ground me. My winter fling with the slow cooker can only last so long and I need to stop and appreciate it. It’s a grass is always greener sort of thing. One that I am finding hard to remember this season. Give me a little snow and it will all come rushing back to me.

Not that I haven’t been known to grill in the snow…

This recipe makes enough short ribs to sauce 3 pounds of pasta.

That being said, I cut everything in half because there is no way Handsome and I need three pounds of pasta. Ever.

Mmm, I love the combination of short ribs and red wine! Serving it over green pasta is a gorgeous idea :)

Wow! No matter the weather, I'd love this one! I'm a fan of my slow cooker and it's nice not to heat up the stove in the summer!

Aw, sorry you and your slow cooker aren't spending as much time together as you'd like. But this looks like a phenomenal dish!
