Presto: Or How To Transform “Toast” Into Pasta

6 Oct

It’s as easy as stashing some caramelized onions in your fridge!

When the stress of the day and the chilliness of the weather combine to form a powerful pasta hankerin’, just pull the onions out and heat them up in about 1/2 cup of white wine, a pinch of cayenne pepper (thanks Deb!), and a splash of sherry vinegar (not balsamic).

Serve over your favorite pasta under a wee drift of grated Parmesan cheese and a healthy dose of freshly ground pepper.

Simple, satisfying and tasty. It doesn’t get much easier than this.

And, uh, yeah, that is two sizes of pasta (papardelle and angel hair) you see in those photos.

I’ve been remiss in keeping my larder in good shape these days. The weather’s been too nice!
