Pasta with Caramelized Sweet Onions, White Wine and Chicken Sausage
I had a hard time naming this recipe. Each ingredient almost takes center stage and need to be included in the title. Include them all and the title is too long. I polled my friends and family and no one came up with anything better than: Pasta with Caramelized Sweet Onions, White Wine and Chicken Sausage. So there is the name I am sticking with.
Pasta tossed in sweet, caramelized onions that cooked away in unoaked Chardonnay from Columbia Crest Wineries, with slices of al fresco sweet Italian chicken sausage, topped in toasted Panko breadcrumbs and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. It sounds so romantic to describe the dish that way and that was certainly my intention.
This meal was one that I prepared for my husband and I on the eve of a long stretch of travel away from home I will embark on. I wanted to make a meal that was not only fast, but would rival what we could get at a restaurant around here. We enjoyed this in our candle lit dining room in our PJ’s. I don’t know about you but that appeals to me more than any night out on the town.
Make this for yourself and let me know what you think. Not only did my husband love it (and tell me so many times) but my kids did as well (I fed them first). I used a sweet onion for this (candy sweets) but you could easily substitute Vidalia. Be sure to let the onions fully caramelize and absorb that wonderful wine.
