This is one of my favorite pasta recipes. It doesn't have a lot of ingredients, the point is to allow the flavors of sage and onion to really shine through. Serve with a little freshly grated Parmesan sprinkled on top and you have a lovely lunch / dinner, simple enough to throw together casually and sophisticated enough to make it feel like a special treat. :)
Last year: Flammkuchen (Tarte flambée) (Alsacian).
Two years ago: Baby making and no cooking. :)
Ingredients (serves 2):
- 200 g orrecchiete pasta
- 1 large yellow onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 rounded teaspoon sage powder (or two teaspoons dry chopped sage, or 1 small handful fresh sage, chopped)
- 100 g creme fraiche (or heavy cream)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan to serve
Boil the pasta according to package instructions. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the chopped onion and the sliced garlic to it and fry on low heat until they're softened. Add the sage:
Mix well and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the pasta, lightly drained, and the cream.
Mix well. Remove from the heat.
Transfer to serving plates and add a tablespoon of Parmesan on top of each.
It's done, dig in! :)
