I have been the crazy lady wearing multiple layers of fleece and long-sleeve yoga tops, finished off with a not-so-artfully placed woven scarf and Uggs while working at the computer. It’s been miserably cold…and as the hubby reminds me, I have a very narrow comfort zone. The negative temperatures we’ve been having need an additional 90º before I’m a happy camper.

So it’s been the season of comfort foods: hearty, filling and delicious entrees like this Beef Burgundy Pasta. There’s every reason to crank up the oven and let beef, veggies, and wine commingle and magically transform into a flavorful pasta topping.

Tips for Making this Boeuf Bourguignon Pasta

We are huge fans of Julia Child’s classic  Boeuf Bourguignon, and this recipe utilizes many of the same ingredients. But instead of simmering beef chunks in a wine sauce, you shred the beef then add the meat, veggies, and juices to penne pasta.

I recommend using a chuck roast as it’s more flavorful than a leaner cut of beef. Just make sure to remove some of the excess fat when prepping the meat. This has become a family favorite and I put it on the menu at least once in the dead of winter.

Buy an extra chuck roast and make my Easy Pot Roast Recipe, too.

A twist on the classic boeuf bourguignon in a pasta dish! Pure comfort.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Yield 6 servings


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-pound chuck roast
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 4 cloves garlic, slivered
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 can (28 ounces) plum tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1+ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup Gallo Family Vineyards Hearty Burgundy
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 pound penne pasta


  1. Preheat the oven to 350º.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pot with a lid (like a Dutch oven) over medium heat. Season beef with salt and pepper. Brown roast on all sides. Remove the meat from the pan, and set aside.
  3. Add the onions, carrots, celery, and slivered garlic and sauté until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Remove the vegetables and set aside.
  4. Return the pot roast to the pot and add the stock. Heat the meat and stock till the stock comes to a boil. Put the lid on the pot and place in the oven for an hour.
  5. Remove the pot from the oven, and slice the meat into 1/4 inch slices. Return the meat to the pot.
  6. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, minced garlic, pepper, salt, thyme, bay leaf, red wine, and reserved vegetables. Bring to a boil, transfer pot to the oven, and bake, covered, until the meat is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Remove the meat and bay leaf from the pot, and allow to cool slightly. Shred the meat (removing any fatty areas) and return it to the pot. Add the parsley and mix to combine.
  8. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook at a rolling boil until just tender. Drain. Toss the sauce with the hot pasta.

    I hear you on the cold weather so what a great idea to was to make this! How gorgeous and delicious! I LOVE a good beef burgundy pasta!!! Looks absolutely beautiful and delicious!

  8. Beef and burgundy are a match made in heaven. Nice recipe, Liz!

  9. Lizzy-This reminds me of your Pot Roast Pasta which is a favorite in my house. I don’t have the recipe handy to compare but this will do! Yummy!!

  10. I love your pasta with all those bits of goodness! Stay warm, Liz!

  11. Liz, this looks amazing. I’ll trade ya; your pasta for my pasta. Don’t even get me started on the layering. It’s so cold here–snow everywhere. Stay warm!

  12. So hearty and comforting. I think many could benefit from this warming dish this week.

  13. What a great dish!! I love it and an awesome idea! This is just perfect!!

  14. It has been unseasonably hot here, and I wish I could trade you a day or two of chill, just to shake things up! I’ll eat your bowl o’ beef in ANY weather!

  15. Liz, I know this pasta would be such a hit in our house! So satisfying and hearty…which is pretty much necessary with all of this cold weather!

  16. I’m so ready for this winter to be over but I think a bowl full of your dish would certainly help pass the time.

  17. What a great twist on beef burgundy! We love pasta around here and often serve stew over buttered noodles, so this would be perfect for us!

  18. That looks absolutely delicious, and I love the dishes! So cute!

  19. Yes, please…beef, wine, on top of pasta. I am there 🙂

  20. Gallo’s Hearty Burgundy was great stuff in the 1960s! Then a decade or two later it seemed to have lost its charm. I’ll have to try it again — wine making goes through fads, and they’ve probably upped their game again. Anyway, speaking of upping one’s game, you outdid yourself with this dish! Love the idea! And I’m so going to steal it some day. 😉 Really nice — thanks.

  21. Dear Lizzy, A beautiful Sunday supper. It will certainly warm the heart and soul.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  22. I’ve never made Boeuf Bourguignon, but I’ve heard and I know that Julia’s recipe is the way to go for that. But this pasta is ever so tempting. Great recipe, Liz!

  23. What a great way to transform beef burgundy. I’d take a big bowl of this for dinner any night!

  24. mmmm I love how hearty and delish this pasta is!

  25. This is definitely some good comfort food for all the cold weather going on. Although I don’t eat beef, I KNOW that is the perfect pairing for this Hearty Burgundy wine!

  26. Amazing flavours… Love the presentation. 🙂

  27. Lizzy,
    This dish looks so hearty and delicious. Gallo wine is still a staple in my family.
    I’m wearing long sleep turtle necks under thick fleece under a quilted buffalo plaid jacket with a hood and that’s indoors. We’ve had negative temps every night too. The two days I commuted to the office last week, it was -12 as I was leaving for work both days. Your temps must be even colder.

  28. I have a pretty small comfort zone, too, and I’m having a hard time finding it this winter!
    I love the look of this pasta – perfect for a cold day.

  29. That is a very unusual combination for pasta but I do understand your needing comfort food. The television is showing us terrible conditions over there. Stay warm – sounds like you are.

  30. It’s been really cold where I am too and this hearty beef pasta sounds perfect Liz! Love the flavors in here and looks delicious!

  31. Liz, I think you’d look cute in anything even if it’s lots of layer! Beef Burgundy does sound like the perfect warmer upper meal. We had snow too in NC but I won’t tell you what the temperature was here today. That might make you want to pack your bags and head south. I think your dear hubby might frown on that!

  32. What lovely flavours in this delicious dish 😀

  33. What a beautiful dish! A hearty pasta to go with the Hearty Burgundy. Looks wonderful Liz!

  34. Gallo’s Hearty Burgundy was a favorite around our house too Liz. I just love the whole concept of this dish. Hearty and filling, just what is needed to plow through this Wintery mess! Thanks for sharing Liz…wishing you heaps of warmth:)

  35. Looks absolutely drool-worthy, Liz.

  36. Nice combination of cuisines…Looks very delicious! 🙂 ela

  37. Not only does it look delicious but also filling with the pasta. My boys are eating me out of house and home and trust me they need more fillers!!!

  38. Ooh this looks so hearty and comforting!I love the flavors and would want a nice big plate all to myself 🙂

  39. Definitely a great recipe for the cooler months, Liz. Love the fat pasta! : )

  40. I love robust flavors — like the one in beef burgundy. I could eat all this pasta by myself! I love the homey food styling, Liz!

  41. I can’t even imagine the weather you’re having, Liz. We had one week in Vancouver this month that saw temperatures of -15 degrees C (with wind chill) and we were dying! I’m glad you have recipes like this up your sleeve to provide comfort. This looks amazing! I’m saving this so that I can make it asap.

  42. I love Boeuf Bourguignon so I know I’d love this pasta!

  43. Wonderful recipe Liz! We never put a whole pot in the oven before, interesting technique. Thank you!

  44. Now this is serious comfort food. I’m right with you in the need for heat. It’s time for warmer weather. Snow be gone!!!!
