Simple, Fast and Delicious.


Good morning everyone.
So we've had ourselves a little winter snow globe happen over the last day.

I don't know about you but this time of year is like food festivus with the comfort foods.

In the interest of week night comfort food that gets on the table semi-quick, I bring you another recipe adapted from the Food 52 Genius Recipes by Kristen Miglore
we carry in store. This book is near in that the recipes are not just one chefs but a compilation of all the highlights from many chefs.




Ingredients:
5 tbsp evoo
6 cups coarsely chopped onion [i prefer sweet vidalia onions]
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cider vinegar

sea salt & pepper
1 tsp nutmeg
1 package egg noodles
2 cups greek style plain yogurt
1 cup grated parmesan cheese



Instructions:
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or pot over medium high heat. Add the chopped onions, stirring often. Add the brown sugar and apple cider vinegar and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook the onions over medium heat until they are softened about 25min [stirring every few minutes]. Remove the lid and turn the heat down to low and continue to cook until they are super soft, sticky and carmelized. 
[you are welcome to omit the brown sugar and cider vinegar and make regular caramelized onions, i just decided to take these one step further as a brown sugar marmalade type onion]
Caramelizing about 30-40min
Marmalade style takes about 60+ min
start the onions while doing laundry, making lunches and they'll be done before you know it



Make your pasta. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta until just past al dente [nice and soft]. Drain the pasta reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
Combine the yogurt with 1/4 cup of the pasta water, nutmeg, pinch of salt and pepper. Add more of the pasta water as needed to get the "sauce" to your desired thickness.
Toss the pasta with the sauce and top with the fantastic onions and their extra juices. Then top with a load of parmesan cheese.
Toss and dig in while still hot and enjoy the simple deliciousness.









Items shown to serve this wonderful dinner found in store are:
Nest serving spoons
Seagrass charger
Black and ivory table runner
antique ironstone bowls
Terracotta planters
Myrtle topiaries
Red stripe linen tea towels used as napkins

So I know reading this probably makes the wait until dinner time a little more trying but I promise the time it takes to make the onions is worth it and the simplicity of a relatively healthy meal is priceless.

Don't forget the glass of wine

Have a great day everyone,

Meg
