Description

In this delightful dish, cream sauce that is inflected with onions and saffron cloaks pasta that's been cooked al dente; then, it's garnished with thyme and grated Parmesan. The saffron lends its yellow hue, while the Parmesan imparts nuttiness and a salty bite. Collectively, the dish feels special even though it's not taxing to prepare. Use stracci or maltagliati if you can.

Ingredients

  • 30 grams butter
  • 1 onions (peeled and diced)
  • 200 milliliters milk
  • 80 grams heavy cream
  • 0.1 grams saffron
  • salt
  • 350 grams pasta (such as stracci or maltagliati)
  • fresh thyme
  • parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

  1. Add the butter to a skillet on medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the milk and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cream, saffron, and a pinch of salt and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce.
  6. Garnish with thyme and serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
