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.
