Marcella Hazan's Spaghetti with Smothered Onions

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ pounds onions, sliced very thin, about 6 cups
Salt
Pepper
½ cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
⅓ cup Parmesan
1 to 1 ½ pounds spaghetti

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Put the butter, olive oil, and onions with some salt in a large sauté pan. Cover and turn on the heat to very low. Cook for almost an hour until the onions become very soft.

2. Uncover the pan, raise the heat to medium high, and cook the onions until they become colored a deep, dark gold. Any liquid the onions may have shed must now boil away.

3. Add liberal grindings of pepper. Taste and correct for salt. Bear in mind that onions become very sweet when cooked in this manner and need an adequate amount of seasoning. Add the wine, turn the heat up, and stir frequently while the wine bubbles away. Add the parsley, stir thoroughly, and take off heat.

4. Toss with cooked drained pasta, adding the grated Parmesan. As you toss, separate the onion strands somewhat to distribute them as much as possible throughout the pasta. Serve immediately.

If you’ve never heard of a galette, it’s essentially a rustic pie or tart. On the blog, I’ve shared recipes for an apple galette and strawberry galette, which are both dessert galettes.

Today, I’m sharing this recipe for a savory galette, which is basically a mushroom tart. If you’ve ever made a French onion tart, it’s not too different from that.

For this mushroom galette recipe, you’ll need pie dough for the pastry aspect. You can make your homemade pie crust or simply use a sheet of store-bought pie dough.

Once you’ve got the pie crust ready to go, you’ll spread a layer of ricotta cheese over the crust, then top it with some grated parmesan for extra flavor.

The cheese is then topped with sautéed mushrooms and caramelized onions before all of the filling is topped with gruyere cheese.

The great thing about a galette is that it’s incredibly versatile. You can use all kinds of vegetables and cheeses to make a galette, so if you’re not a fan of mushrooms or you’re not a fan of gruyere, you can swap them out.

If you are a fan of mushrooms, however, you are going to love this version.

The combination of mushrooms with onions is divine. Anytime I make this for a gathering with friends, I always get people asking me for the recipe.

You can also enjoy this mushroom galette as a meal with a glass of crisp, white wine.

To serve the galette, simply cut it up into pizza-like slices. If you’re serving it as an appetizer, you’ll want to cut them into smaller slices. If you’re serving it as a meal, you can afford to be more generous with your portions.

You can also prep this galette and freeze it for baking later. If you decide to make ahead and freeze, just be sure to increase the duration in which you bake the tart as it will likely need more time to bake through.

Tips to make best onion pakoda

  1. Taste test gram flour: Using good quality gram flour or besan is very important as it brings in a lot of aroma when roasted. Store bought gram flour goes rancid very quickly which turns bitter within a few months. So always taste test the gram flour before using.
  2. Preparing onions: To get evenly fried crisp onion pakoda, slice the onions uniformly to thin slices. Some thick and some thin will not yield you crispy pakoras. The thicker slices do not get fried well leaving the pakoras soft. So slice them to moderately thin sizes.
  3. Flour : Traditionally pakoda are made with gram flour or besan. However an additional ingredients like semolina, corn flour or rice flour is added in the street style and restaurant style as these ingredients keep the fritters crisp for longer. So do use 1 to 2 tbsps of this in the recipe.
  4. Substitutes:If you are allergic to gram flour, then you can use wheat flour to make the pakoda. Do note the taste differs but they will be still good.
  5. Temperature of oil: The oil has to be moderately hot enough before adding the dough. If the oil is not hot enough, the pakoras will soak up oil. If the oil is too hot, the onion pakoda will brown outside but will not get cooked inside.
  6. Frying pakoras: Pakodas have to be fried on a medium high flame. Frying them on a low flame will make them hard. Frying them on a high flame will burn them from outside without cooking inside.

Recipe Book

Moebius is the main reason why this section is here. On your first playthrough you won't be able to make most of the recipes when the MQ becomes available and as such will have to use weaker food items to get similar effects. So, below I've listed all of them and their effects as well as all other bits of relevant info about them for anyone looking to complete their recipe book.

Aside from Chunky Potato Salad, every recipe is acquired by sampling the recommended dish, so the location just tells you where and when to find the dishes. I do not know if Barney's Piled Onion Ring recipe is available for the entire game, but I assume that it is given that he never stops selling onion rings. I didn't bother to name the people who make peculiar dishes, since the game already tells you, but if you want them included on the table PM me I have a way of including them without cluttering the table.

I recommend closing the table of contents when viewing, since this table is formatted for fullscreen views.

Hearty Kebab


Preparation

For the crust:

Peel the potatoes and shred on a box grater. Soak them in some water for about 30 minutes.

Remove the shredded potatoes from the water, squeeze out any excess liquid from them and place them in a bowl.

Shred the onion on the same box grater and add it to the potatoes, along with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, salt and pepper, and mix well together to combine.

Add the remaining olive oil to a 9-inch nonstick, ovenproof skillet. Add the potato mixture and pat it in evenly all over the bottom and sides. Pop it in the oven for 25 minutes.

For the filling:

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, Parmesan, salt and pepper.

Pour the mixture into the partially baked crust, then scatter in the cooked veggies, followed by the cheese.

Pop it back in the oven for another 25 minutes, or until the eggs are set and crust is golden-brown and crispy.

Once ready, loosen the sides with a knife or spatula if the bottom doesn't seem very crispy, pop it on your stovetop on medium heat until it crisps up then slide it out onto a platter. Allow it to sit for a bit before serving.
