Pasta with Caramelized Onions & Blue Cheese


  • 1 pound chunky pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 cups chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine, vegetable broth, or water
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) of blue cheese)

Bring a large covered pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente.

Meanwhile, in a skillet on medium heat, warm the oil and cook the onions with the salt and pepper until soft, golden brown, and lightly carmelized. Add the wine, broth, or water and continue to cook on low heat, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is done. If the onions begin to stick, add some pasta cooking water.

When the pasta is done, drain it, reserving a cup of the hot water. Place the pasta in a serving bowl, add the onions (swirl some of the reserved water around in the skillet to get out every tasty bit) and the blue cheese, and toss together to melt the cheese and coat the pasta. Add more of the pasta cooking water if you’d like it saucier. Serve hot.
