I love caramelized onions so I knew this sauce was something I had to make. It is so sweet and delicious. It is also very dense so when I say toss the sauce with the pasta, I mean it. I had to stir it quite a bit to get all the pasta covered. If you love onions you will love this sauce. If you use homemade pasta (which is more absorbent than store bought) Marcella suggests using 1 Tablespoon more butter when starting the sauce.

Smothered Onion Sauce
Adapted from Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking by Marcella Hazan
Serves 4-6

2 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds onions, about 6 cups or 3-4 medium onions
Black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 to 1 1/2 pounds pasta

Slice the onions thinly.

Put butter, onion and salt in a large skillet. Cover and turn on the lowest heat setting. Cook for almost an hour, until the onions become very soft.

Uncover, and increase heat to medium-high and cook onions until they become a deep, dark gold color (this took about 20 minutes on my stove), stirring occasionally and until all the liquid has boiled away.

Season with pepper. Taste and add salt if needed. Add wine, increase heat, and stir continuously while wine evaporates. Add parsley and stir.

Toss with cooked and drained pasta. Add Parmesan. Serve immediately.

I am a HUGE fan of caramelized onions so I would definitely love this dish. It sounds like the perfect indulgence. Great recipe!

Holly said...

This sounds so delicious although I think I would make it for just my hubby and I-the kiddos are anti onion;( lol

Velva said...

This looks so good. I love carmalized onions and tossed in with pasta and cheese, it has to be wonderful. I was thinking not only is this a wonderful dish but a very economical one too.
I have bookmarked this one.

Kim said...

Not only would I love this sauce, I have a friend who would go nuts over it. I am going to have to share this with her! (She's always trying to swipe the onions off my plate).

As a huge fan of caramelized onions, this dish looks like serious food porn to me. Great job!

Bridget- You will love it!
Holly- Try it for the kids. It is really sweet. I ate it with a 4 and 5 year old today and they both loved it.
Velva- Very economical and super easy. I am jealous of all your fresh blueberries! I feel like spring hasn't even sprung here yet.
Kim- I "had" a friend like that once!
Lazaro- It's so good and makes your house smell awesome!

Linda said...

Great recipe! Nothing smells better than caramelizing onions. I have a friend who has a food stand. When business is slow, they throw onions on the grill. It always draws business to them he says.

I absolutely LOVE caramelized onions. That tender sweetness is so worth the extra time and effort.

Elena said...

I have never tried caramelized onions, is the first time i hear but it reminds an italian sauce La genovese
anyway this sounds good

elra said...

OMG Tonya, I have that book, how can I miss this recipe. Thank you for posting this. I will look into it.

Claudia said...

Caramelized onions are awesome. First time I did it though, they simmered for 9, yes NINE, hours. It was for French Onion Soup, and I took the direction to keep the heat way low, and cook until deep brown color. Luckily, I made a huge pot full, and was able to use all those delicious onions in several incarnations.

Looking forward to trying it as a pasta sauce.

Pam said...

I will be trying this as caramelized onions are so delicious. Thanks!

Joanne said...

I love caramelized onions. It is definitely a beautiful idea for a pasta topping.
