96/100 by 90 users
Farfalle Pasta With Spinach Mushrooms And Caramelized Onions

IngredientsCaramelized onions

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 yellow onions large sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Creamy pasta sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 10 oz mushrooms sliced (I used button mushrooms)
  • 6 oz spinach
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Pasta

  • 8 oz farfalle pasta

InstructionsHow to caramelize onions:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add sliced onions and cook on high heat for about 10 minutes constantly stirring with the spatula.
  2. The onions should start to brown but without burning.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking onions for 10 more minutes continuing to stir as onions brown even more without burning. At this point add a pinch of salt over onions.
  4. Continue cooking for 10 more minutes on medium or low heat stirring occasionally to make sure onions don’t stick to the bottom of the pan or burn.
  5. In total you should have cooked onions for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove the skillet from heat and sprinkle the onions with a small amount of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan.
  7. Using a spatula stir the onions scraping the bottom of the pan and coating onions with a pinch of balsamic vinegar you just added. Remove caramelized onions to a plate.

How to cook mushrooms and spinach:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in the same skillet on medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  2. Cook mushrooms for about 5 minutes occasionally stirring until mushrooms are soft.
  3. Add fresh spinach to the skillet and stir on low heat just until spinach starts to wilt.

How to make creamy pasta sauce:

  1. Add half-and-half to the mushroom and spinach mixture and bring to a quick boil. Immediately reduce to simmer.
  2. Add 2/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Keep stirring while the sauce simmers until the cheese melts.
  3. Add caramelized onions back to the skillet with the pasta sauce.

Cook pasta:

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain.
  2. Add cooked and drained farfalle pasta to the creamy sauce. Stir on low heat for a couple of minutes to reheat.
  3. If the sauce is too thick add a small amount of half-and-half to thin it out. If it is too thin add a small amount of shredded Parmesan cheese and stir it in while the sauce simmers.

Serve with more shredded parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.Recipe NotesSubstitute for half-and-half: Use 1/2 cup of heavy cream + 1/2 cup of milk instead of 1 cup of half-and-half.This article and recipe adapted from this site
