Default mashup "apt-cache search " & "dpkg -l" - HowTo? ; jor Ubuntu

Is there a way to mashup "apt-cache search <SearchTerm>" & "dpkg -l"
- so that given a SearchTerm,
it would find all the related package names in the cache,
then do a "dpkg -l" on those package names?

No need for dpkg.

aptitude -F "%c%a %p %v %d" search '?narrow(?installed,searchterm)'
