Fish and pasta stew

This dish is quite simple despite the rather lengthy list of ingredients. All measurements are very approximate; in truth I never measure anything, except the first time I follow a recipe. This recipe is very flexible, and it's also delicious with meat instead of fish. The quantities below served four hungry mouths.

YOU'LL NEED:
- Olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 can chopped tomatoes
- 1 glass white or rosé wine
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- black pepper
- oregano
- salt
- Half a glass wine vinegar
- 1 cup stock
- 1 dinner-plate full of chopped vegetables (courgette/zucchini, aubergine/eggplant, green beans, peas, whatever's at hand)
- Half a plate full of coarsely chopped green leaves (kale, cabbage, spinach)
- 500 grams (18 oz) fish, cubed
- 250 grams (9 oz) seafood (mussels, prawns, chopped squid, etc.)
- 300 grams (11 oz) pasta

HERE'S HOW YOU MAKE IT:
1. Coat the bottom of a large saucepan generously with olive oil, and heat
2. Fry the onions gently until soft
3. Turn up the heat and add the tomatoes, stirring till somewhat reduced
4. Stir in three-quarters of the wine
5. Drink the remaining quarter glass of wine. (Repeat this step as necessary)
6. Add the remaining ingredients except the pasta, and barely cover with boiling water
7. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring gently occasionally
8. Boil the pasta according to instructions on the packet, and drain
9. When the main dish has thickened enough so that, when you draw a wooden spoon across the bottom, the liquid takes a moment to run in behind the spoon, add the drained pasta.
10. Stir thoroughly but carefully and leave 5 minutes to harmonise, then serve with a salad.

Naples would be a good place to find such a dish, for sure, Alf 😀
