1 Onion, chopped fine about 1 cup

2 Garlic cloves, minced

½ c. Dry white wine, chardonnay or Chablis

¼ c. Fresh parsley, chopped


  • Prepare a hot pan that has a lid about medium size like a large sauté pan.
  • Add olive oil, wait until hot, and then add onions, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and bay leaves.
  • Cook until onions and garlic are soft.
