From Victoria Abbott/Mary Jane Maffini
We could indeed.
Here's what we came up with using what we had in the house.
Here's all we needed:
Slowly carmelizing onions while you do something else is one of the great cooking secrets. The taste changes amazingly and really, it’s so easy.
Keep cooking until pasta is ready, which reminds me: Meanwhile cook your favorite pasta until al dente or more cooked if you prefer. Ten – twelve minutes. Your choice.
Truth in advertising: the rotini tasted great, but wasn't that photogenic. So we tried it another time with fettuccine. Perhaps no beauty either, but it delivered the taste.
What about you? What's your favorite cheap and cheerful meal?
Victoria Abbott is Mary Jane Maffini and Victoria Maffini (seen above trying not to look too wicked. Maybe that needs work).
Their first collaborative effort The Christie Curse: a book collector mystery comes out March 5, 2013
