Add a half bottle of red wine and stir well to mix. Leave on a medium flame for 5 minutes until the wine in the pot reduces to 1/3. Put short ribs in the sauce and bring it to simmer. Make medium incisions across pork tenderloin with a knife and stuff it with cloves of garlic. Place this pork in sauce.


Place all the ingredients needed for meatballs in a bowl and mix it. Bake meatballs at 350 for 20 minutes. Add meatballs in the sauce after baking. Slice sausage in thirds and put in the sauce. 


Almost one hour before serving, hard boil six eggs and add 1 tsp vinegar and salt and leave it to cool.  Put bell pepper under a broiler for five minutes until blackens. Put it in plastic bags and cool. Season chicken breast pieces with pepper and salt. Spread soft cheese on it. Top it with basil and roasted pepper. Secure it with a toothpick after rolling it and dip it in the sauce.
