A mouthwatering ragù in less than 30 minutes? It's possible, thanks to already shredded braised pork and a little red wine. Serve the rest of the wine at the table, along with crusty bread to soak up every last bit of sauce.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions until al dente; drain.

Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, Italian herb seasoning, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes until combined.

Stir in tomatoes, wine and sugar. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 15 minutes. Add pork; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute.

Toss with pasta; serve topped with Parmesan cheese and basil.
