This is my new favourite, super-quick, very easy pasta dinner. It comes from Stefan’s Gourmet Blog – here. The preparation is quick but it takes a while to cook, but this is an advantage as it means you can start it off and then go out, check on the sheep and chicks, and walk the dogs before dinner.
Last night I got back from London late, Harold had been tiling the toilet block all day and James was busy on the site- we needed something quick and delicious.
Caramalised Onion Spaghetti: two large onions, chunk of guanciale, spaghetti, Parmesan. You could use parsley too – this would be good, but I was too lazy to go and get some.
Cut the guanciale into chunks. You could use pancetta or bacon or just leave it out. Fry gently, then add the sliced onions and cook over a low heat for ages. Cook the pasta, add some of the water to the guanciale/onion mix to loosen it. Mix it all together and then sprinkle over parmesan – how easy is that? We had it with salad.
