Farfalle with Caramelized Onions and Broccoli

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

A hint of dried tarragon brings out the flavors of browned onion slices and steamed broccoli.
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil, plus more for drizzling, optional
  • 1 tsp. dried tarragon
  • 8 oz. dry farfalle pasta (2 cups)
  • 3 cups small broccoli florets

1. Cut onion into 8 wedges. Cut each wedge into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

2. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 10 minutes, or until browned. Add 1 cup water and tarragon, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until most of liquid has evaporated.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions, adding broccoli 3 minutes before end of cooking time. Drain broccoli and pasta, and add to onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and drizzle with olive oil, if using.

Easy to make. I added feta cheese for additional flavor.

Very easy to make, surprisingly about all i had was an onion farfalle pasta and broccoli in the kitchen! I didnt have any tarragon though, so i used herbs de provance...maybe not the best sub but it was still pretty good, broccoli was a little plain. Next time i will use tarragon.
