Linguine with Slow-Cooked Onions, page 519

Bryan has entered his travel season which means that I’m home alone occassionally. This means I can eat whatever I want. Including but not limited to: onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Sometimes all three make an appearance.

Last week I had a bag full of onions and decided that this would be a great meal to make just for me. The beauty of this recipe is how easy it is. First you finely chop a bunch of onions. Hello, food processor. We meet again! (I really love my food processor. I don’t understand people who don’t use them.) Then you cook them for a while. Besides stirring every so often and boiling some pasta that’s it. Mix pasta with onions, top with cheese.  It’s so simple and so delicious. These are the types of recipes that Mark Bittman excels at.

This recipe does make a ton. So I don’t recommend it if you are eating by yourself and your husband avoids onions like the plague.
