Pasta with Caramelized Onion, Italian Sausage & Parsley

If you start off with al dente orecchiette (“small ear” shaped pasta in Italian), and add in crumbled Italian sausage, buttery-sweet caramelized onions, salty-nutty parmigiano, and fresh chopped parsley. There’s absolutely nothing that can ruin the ecstasy that occurs from eating this pasta! All in life is right.

This dish is ridiculously delicious, okay? Just ridiculous.

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Total time: 1 hour

The Ingredients

1 pound orecchiette pasta (sub penne or rigatoni if needed)

4 medium yellow onions, sliced into roughly 1/4 inch strips

1/2 pound parmigiano reggiano cheese

Salt & pepper

 

 

 

The Steps

For the caramelized onions: In a large pot over medium heat, add butter, olive oil, and onion. Cover, cook, and stir every few minutes for 20-25 minutes until onions become golden brown (caramelize). Turn heat off and set aside.

For the sausage (while caramelized onions are cooking): Use a knife to remove sausage meat from casings. Cook sausage meat in a separate dry pot over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, until sausage is completely cooked through. Use a potato masher and/or large spoon to break up sausage into small crumbles as it cooks.

For the pasta: Cook orecchiette according to box instructions, or until al dente.

To assemble: Add drained pasta and crumbled sausage to caramelized onion pot over low heat, tossing until combined. Add a handful of chopped parsley, a large handful of parmigiano, a drizzle of olive oil if dry, and salt and pepper to taste.

To serve: Serve in pasta bowls garnished with parsley and parmigiano. Life doesn’t get better.
