Just like a risotto the broth/stock used can can make or break this dish. You want to use either a homemade beef broth or a good quality store bought one. This is not the dish to make with a crumbled stock cube.

The pasta is cooked slowly in the stock, allowing the starch to thicken the juice and create a creamy and rich texture. Just like risotto, this needs love and attention. You slowly add the stock and then stir gently to cook the pasta through. Although it takes effort it isn’t hard work. A bit of monotonous stirring can be very relaxing.

Once the pasta is cooked it is finished with plenty of fresh parmesan and a sprinkling of fresh herbs. Simple yet delicious.

We used a spiral pasta, but any tubular pasta will work. You want to ensure it is a sturdy shape as the constant stirring would break the edges off something like a farfalle or a rotini. If you don’t have a tubular pasta then parpadelle broken into small pieces will work but it is harder to eat.

Serving Suggestion:

Side: Whilst this pasta is comforting and rich it is lacking in vegetables so try serving this along side a plate of steamed asparagus or french beans.

Wine: To pull out the sweet onion flavour try pairing this with a fruity red Beaujolais. Or go for a lightly acidic white like a Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio.
