Then turn the pasta into a colander and, to prevent it cooking any further, rinse it under the cold tap.

Caramelised Balsamic and Red Onion Tarts with Goats' Cheese First make up the pastry by rubbing the butter lightly on to the flour, then adding the cheese, mustard and cayenne plus just enough cold water to make a smooth dough. Then place the dough in a polythene bag to rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. After that, roll it out as thinly as possible and use a 5 inch (13 cm) cutter, or a saucer or something similar, to stamp out 8 rounds. Line the greased tins with them, then bake in the oven, centre shelf, for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is cooked through but not coloured. Then cool the pastry cases on a wire rack and store them in an airtight tin until they are needed. To make the filling, melt the butter in a heavy-based, medium-sized saucepan, stir in the onions, balsamic vinegar and chopped sage, season and let everything cook very gently without a lid, stirring often, for about 30 minutes until they have reduced down and taken on a lovely glazed appearance and all the excess liquid has evaporated away.

Chefs' secret ingredients: turn dinner from basic to brilliant The ingredient: sage and onion stuffing By Jack Monroe, food writer and campaigner On the top shelf in my kitchen, nestled behind the jars of butterscotch Angel Delight and instant mash, is a pair of jars of pale green breadcrumbs – 24p sage and onion stuffing crumbs. I use them for coating homemade nuggets or fish fingers, padding out meatballs, in a can of tomatoes for a two-ingredient pappa al pomodoro, to top pasta bakes and macaroni, in garlic bread, to make a bread sauce with a flavour bang, mixed with chopped tomatoes for a quick panzanella, and in a five-ingredient nut roast for my vegetarian partner on a Sunday. I buy five boxes at a time and sieve them: fine powder in one jar for breadcrumb coatings, thickening stews and bread making, and the chunkier pieces in another for meatballs, toppings and soups.
