Pasta with Marsala Onions

Pasta with Marsala Onions

Posted 2015-01-27 by Lindsay Lawfollow
Marsala is an Italian dessert wine that's often used in cooking to give savoury dishes a sweet, rich flavour. It goes very well with onions and shallots, and makes an excellent pasta sauce base.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4-6 servings

Ingredients
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 very large onions (or 3 or 4 smaller ones)
2 cloves of garlic
6 tbsp Marsala wine (will be used in 2 sets of 3)
375g dried pasta
100g hard cheese
50g butter
Grinding of salt and pepper

Method
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan.
  • Chop the onions into long, fine strips and crush the garlic. Put them in the pan and sweat gently over a low heat without colouring until the onion starts to go soft.
  • Bring water to boil in a saucepan and cook the pasta as per the packet instructions.
  • Turn the heat up on the onions and add 3 tablespoons of Marsala wine. Stir and allow to reduce until almost all is absorbed into the onions.



  • Add the next 3 tbsp of wine and allow to reduce once more. The onions should now be a golden colour in a rich, slightly syrupy sauce.
  • Drain the cooked pasta and toss in a pan along with the onions. Add the butter and salt and pepper and allow to melt in and coat the pasta and onions.



  • Serve with the hard cheese, like Parmesan, grated over the top.
