This cheese and onion pasta recipe is part of a personal project, Recipes For Kim, where a reader has sent me a list of the ingredients in her kitchen cupboard and I promised to write some recipes around them. These aren’t costed, as this isn’t my kitchen cupboard, but I will add them to the Below The Line recipe section over the next few days…
Recipes for Kim: Cheese and onion pasta
Ingredients (serves two):
2 large white onions
2 tbsp oil
4 tbsp passatta
Grated cheese
150g pasta (orzo, in this case)
Peel and chop the onions, and place them in a sauté or frying pan on a very low heat to soften. Add a shake of oregano.
Meanwhile, put the pasta water on to boil. Add the pasta, and reduce to a medium simmer to cook.
When the onions are translucent and sweet, stir in the passatta, and toss through the pasta. Top with a handful of grated cheese, and serve.
Also works well as a simple risotto!
