    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    Made this tonight and wow, I impressed myself:D Just like Puccini's opera 'Il Trittico' this unusual dish is made of three main parts. Cointreau-spiked caramelized onions and sweet oranges are complemented by the slightly tart dried apricots to create a multilayered flavor. Nuts and parmesan complement the tart and sweet tastes. Really delicious! From the Opera Lover's Cookbook by food historian Francine Segan. Found on the NPR website. I can now proudly announce that in fact I saw Il Trittico at Lincoln Center.

      This dish is wonderful! We loved it! It is light and fruity, definitely a "wow" dish. I cut it in half for two servings and added a 1/2 lb. of sauteed shrimp (chicken would work, as well). It's quick and easy to make, and I really recommend it.
