2 tbsp dried minced onion
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 cup white wine (I used 3-buck Chuck, whatever you've got - but avoid "cooking wine" if you can)
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp EVOO (If you've been living under a rock, that's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil)
1 1/2 tsp jarred minced garlic
1/8 tsp granulated dried garlic
1/4 cup french fried onions
1 can minced clams with juice
1/4 cup finely minced canned roasted red pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes
Place onions in a small bowl and cover with an equal amount of wine, refrigerate overnight. Treat parsley and basil the same way in a separate bowl. If you're pressed for time, put each of these combinations in a microwave cup, heat for 30 seconds, and set aside for about a minute.
Serve over cooked pasta.
