DIRECTIONS: Wash lemon, dry, and cut in half lengthwise. With paring knife, remove peel from one half of lemon, avoiding white pith; reserve remaining half for another use. Peel red onion; cut into thin slices, separate into rings, and set aside. Peel and quarter white or yel- low onions; cut into thin slivers. You will have about 125 ml (1 cup) red onion and about 500 ml (2 cups) white or yellow onions. Heat oil in flameproof casserole over low heat. Add lemon peel and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in slivered onions, salt, pepper, and pinch of sugar. Raise heat to medium, cover the casserole, and simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, 20 to 30 minutes, or until onions are well browned. Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry red bell pepper. Halve, core, and seed pepper, and cut into 0.25 cm (1/8 inch) thick strips. Set aside. Grate parmesan to measure 125 ml (1/2 cup). Set aside. Add pasta to boiling water and, after water returns to a boil, cook about 30 seconds for angel hair pasta or 2 to 3 minutes for capellini. Turn pasta into colander to drain. Add pasta to onions in casserole and toss gently. Add red onion rings, pepper strips, butter to taste, parsley, and 60 ml (1/4 cup) grated parmesan to pasta, and toss. Divide pasta among bowls and serve with remaining parmesan. Recipe and photo: Great meals in min- utes - Italian menus, Time-Life Books.

ARIES You weigh the pros and cons for a while before coming to a decision. Even if you have all the necessary information, count on your intuition to provide you with the best solution. TAURUS There’s a lot of work on the horizon and many details to manage. You may be able to finalize an agreement or settle a dispute for good. This si- tuation is very profitable for you. GEMINI You really need to look your best. Take the time to spoil yourself, per- haps with an addition to your ward- robe or a makeover. Show yourself off to advantage one way or another. CANCER You devote a lot of time to the fa- mily or your home. You and your family may get involved in a regular activity with friends; don’t resist, be- cause it’s going to be a lot of fun. LEO You have a lot to say for yourself, even if you’re misunderstood some of the time. You may end up finding it easier to lead by example in or- der to be understood clearly. VIRGO Some unforeseen expenses come up. However, this is a good time to negotiate a loan with your financial institution; doing so could help you avoid having to tighten your belt even more. LIBRA Lots of action awaits. You should find it easy to accomplish some- thing that gets a lot of people talk- ing. You can expect a nice salary increase after an important agree- ment is finalized. SCORPIO A little reflection is needed before you start any sort of project. You tend not to consult anyone, even if your decisions involve other peo- ple. Be aware of this and adjust accordingly. SAGITTARIUS Stress dominates much of the week. You need to get some rest other- wise your body will send you sig- nals to slow down. Recharging your batteries will do you good. CAPRICORN Even if you have a tight schedule and lots of work and family res- ponsibilities, take the time to relax by visiting some good friends you’ve been neglecting lately. AQUARIUS If you’ve been neglecting your re- lationship recently because of work, consider going on a romantic trip in order to renew and strengthen your mutual feelings. PISCES Emotions are running high, and one situation in particular may really af- fect you. One of your children expe- riences success, even if it’s in some- thing simple, like taking his or her first steps.
