Get ready for your kitchen to smell heavenly! The secret to this pasta is cooking the onions until theyre a deep golden brown, intense with flavor to balance the minimal ingredients. They should be mostly broken down, almost melting into the hot pasta to create a simple sauce. To prevent them from becoming mushy, stir only occasionally. To make this more of a carbonara instead of a cream sauce, omit the cream and beat together one egg with the Parmesan cheese. Add to the hot pasta along with the caramelized onions and serve immediately.
This pasta salad is built to impress. Ive made this dairy-free dish for countless potlucks and its a hit time after time. The secret is the fragrant, balsamic basil dressing that highlights the assortment of roasted vegetables. Once youve tried it here, enjoy the aromatic dressing on tomatoes and grilled eggplant. The other beauty of this pasta salad is that it only gets better with time. Make it in the morning and serve it at room temperature in the afternoon as a hearty side salad or main dish.
