I went to a Pampered Chef party where this was served. Many people asked for the recipe! Update: I have revised this recipe due to people having trouble with the instructions. I hope this makes it easier to follow.
Fennel is the surprise touch here. Something abuot its unexpected flavor often fools people into thinking that this is a meat-based sauce. Ladle over Mushroom and Spinach-stuffed Zucchini, Sun Dried Tomato Polenta Cutlets, or whatever you want!
As a condiment, this is top of the list! Long, slow cooking lends the onions succulence and depth, which, in turn, adds a wonderful rich flavor to almost any dish. Try this on toast, biscuits, potatoes, pizza, in sandwiches, in a soup or stew, and especially good over Sun Dried Tomato Polenta Cutlets! From Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat Favorites Cookbook. Enjoy!
