Creamy Caramelised Onion, Grana Padano & Proscuitto Pasta


Creamy Caramelised Onion, Grana Padano and Proscuitto Pasta

You can forget the diet with this Creamy Caramelised Onion, Grana Padano and Proscuitto Pasta recipe - but the calories are SO WORTH IT! This is my all time favourite Saturday night dinner in front of the TV with a cheeky glass of dry white wine. Ahhh I'm dreaming about it now!

The onions are cooked for a really long time to bring out their sweetness which contrasts so well with the nutty pine nuts and salty proscuitto. I use marsala in this recipe, which is a fortified wine from Sicily, but ordinary white wine would work OK too. If you did want to try and cut the calories a little bit, you could use half fat creme fraiche instead of the double cream, but I think if you're going to enjoy it, enjoy it in its full glory and go for the double cream! You wont be sorry - just do an extra 20 minutes of exercise the next day if it makes you feel better. That's my tactic.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THIS CARAMELISED ONION, GRANA PADANO AND PROSCUITTO PASTA

  1. Cook the onions slow and low. Don't let them burn otherwise it will ruin the taste of the finished dish. You want them a deep golden brown colour. It will take at least 30 minutes - so don't rush it!
  2. Up the veggies by adding some cooked peas at the same time as you add the double cream.
  3. Make it veggie by using vegetarian hard cheese instead of the grana padano and omit the proscuitto.
  4. To cut the calories use half fat creme fraiche instead of the double cream

  1. Have it with pretty much any pudding or dessert like chocolate pots, baked apples, apple pie, fruit crumble or make it into fudge or boil with brown sugar to make toffee sauce for ice cream. assignment writing service uk
