Red onions and oranges are a lovely food combination. Add avocados if they are handy for another delicious version of this dish.

Dinner:

Ear-Shaped Pasta With Baby Artichokes, White Wine, Garlic, Parsley and Bread Crumbs

Orecchiette, the little ear-shaped pasta, is fun to eat. It also holds up well to sauces and dressings for party dishes that need to hold awhile.
