This week for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book with Glennis and whoever else wants to join us, I made Fusilli ai Porri e Cipolla Rossa (Fusilli with Leeks and Red Onions), on page 75. We are an onion-loving family so when I was looking through the book this recipe stood out right away: onions and pasta, what's not to love about that?
Okay, first off, it is not fusilli pasta as I could not locate that this past week, I used rotini as it looks and acts the same and I can always locate it at the market. The ingredient list: red onion, leeks, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, Italian parsley, and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.
This is as easy as sauteing onions and boiling pasta and then assembling it all. If you like onions, this is one for you to make...it is fresh and light. I would definitely make this one again.
If you like the looks and sounds of it, buy the book as I am a believer in encouraging people to support the authors who put together these fabulous books by buying a copy, so you won't find the recipes posted from this book here. (Buy it, the recipes are easy, the ingredients are easy to locate, it's not pricey, and there are photos of almost all the recipes.)
