This gorgeous pasta dish only takes about 30 minutes to make & is incredibly tasty. Just what I’ve been looking for! (Recipe adapted from The Silver Spoon: Pasta cookbook.)
Here is what you will need to feed 2 hungry parents. (Easily doubled)
- 40g Butter
- 2 Large Onions
- 1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
- 200g Fusilli Pasta *
- 15 – 20g Freshly grated Parmesan
- Salt & Pepper
* or any dried shaped pasta of your choice
First job – peel & slice the onions as thinly as you can.
In a large, non stick frying pan – melt the butter over a low heat.
Add the onion into the pan and cook over a gentle heat for about 20 minutes until the onions have gone soft & golden brown. Don’t be tempted to turn up the heat as this could make them crispy.
Add the thyme to the onions and season well with salt and pepper. Give it a stir.
I don’t know about you but I am a huge onion fan. To me, any food that stinks is all good in my books! This really is delicious though and perfect for those of us with busy lives. Only taking about 30 minutes from start to finish to make, no excessive pot washing to do afterwards & those hearty carbohydrates keeping you fuller for longer – it answers all my prayers! A meal I am more than happy to add to my repertoire & one I think you should too 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies – until next time.
