Caramelized Onion Pasta with Gorgonzola Recipe

The combination of caramelized onions and gorgonzola cheese is out of this world – amazing! It all started with a craving for some cheesy comfort food.

Gorgonzola cheese is wonderful to cook with. It gives this sauce a little bit of tanginess. And it pairs so well with the slightly sweetness from the caramelized onions.

It gives a little bit of that salty sweet deliciousness that we sometimes crave.

What Type of Pasta to Use

For this recipe, I like a thicker pasta because we believe it adds to the comforting factor of this dish. A pasta like a penne, rigatoni, tagliatelle, or mafalda works well.

But feel free to use whatever pasta you have on hand or prefer.

Quick Steps to Making This Pasta Dish

  • Begin by caramelizing the onions, set aside when done.
  • Bring the pasta water to a boil. Don’t forget to salt the pasta water!
  • Shred the parmigiano cheese – fresh is best.
  • Use a fork to break off pieces of the gorgonzola cheese.
  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  • While the pasta is cooking, make the cheese sauce.
  • Put it all together. Serve & enjoy.

It’s incredibly simple to make. And oh so satisfying!

The perfect comforting pasta food dish. This caramelized onion pasta is the perfect under 30 minute dinner. It is slightly sweet from the caramelized onions and tangy from the addition of the gorgonzola cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon of gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup of freshly shredded parmigiano reggiano cheese
  • 1 pound pasta

Instructions

    1. In a skillet, heat up the olive oil.
    2. Slice onions into thin (about 1/8 - 1/4 inches) pieces and add to the heated skillet.
    3. Saute the onions until browned, stirring frequently. It does take a little while to caramelize the onions. As they start to brown, you'll want to stir often to prevent burning and to brown the onions more evenly. You'll know that they are ready when they are soft and a nice golden brown.
    4. While the onions are cooking, start boiling pasta water. Don't forget to salt the pasta water. The rule of thumb that I follow for salting pasta water is to add about 1 tablespoon per 1 pound of pasta. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
    5. In a separate sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat. Add both the gorgonzola and parmigiano cheeses to the sauce pan. Stir in the milk. Stir the cheese mixture continuously until the cheese is completely melted.
    6. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it. Add the caramelized onions and gorgonzola cheese sauce. Combine well with the pasta.
    7. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
