    I made this as a simple lunch. I couldn't find any onions so I used a shake of onion powder instead. I also used cold spaghetti from the night before, and I didn't have very much parmesan cheese. In spite of all of these potential set-backs this made a tasty meal that I most definitly will make next time I have leftover spaghetti. :)

    Didn't make any changes although I think I might have added double the amount of onion, got a bit carried away. Nevertheless, this was great, cooked this amount and used it as a side dish. I love broccoli my daughter calls it "green death" and will eat it only if it dressed up a bit. This was a perfect side dish, not too overpowering, just right. Will definitely be making this again.

    Although I might argue about the balance between, onion and garlic ... the basic idea sounds great. Just rember that Cooking is a creative sport. The pasta should require about 8 minutes if thrown into rapidly boiling salted water

    Made this for dinner tonight. Very good! I did cut it in half though and that was plenty for me. Will definitely make again! Perfect side dish with grilled chicken breast. Thanks for sharing.

    Fantastic side dish to simply grilled chicken but also a great tasting what-shall-I-have-tonight dish! Thank you Bergy!

On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
