   10       oz           Pasta shells -- 275 g
    2       tb           Sunflower oil
    1       ea           Onion -- sliced in thin rings
    2       ea           Garlic cloves -- crushed
    2       ts           Poppy seeds
                         Sea salt & black pepper
    1       t            Red rose petals -- heaped
 
   Cook the pasta shells in plenty of boiling, salted
   water until al dente. Drain, toss in a little
   sunflower oil and keep warm. Put the remaining oil in
   a pan with the onion rings and sweat gently until the
   onion is soft but not browned. Lift out the onion with
   a slotted spoon and mix with the pasta shells. Put the
   garlic into the oil in which the onions were cooked
   and fry, stirring for 1 minute. Mix the cooked garlic
   into the pasta. Toss the pasta in a warmed serving
   bowl or dish and sprinkle over the poppy seeds and
   seasoning to taste. Just before serving, throw in the
   rose petals.
