French onion pasta in a pot
Tiktok's French Onion Pasta Combines Two Unbeatable Comfort Foods
A cozy one-pot recipe trend featured on TikTok combines pasta and French onion soup, creating a luxurious blend of two things that are already comforting by themselves.
To make French onion pasta, start by caramelizing onions in a pot until soft and browned. Then, add garlic, thyme, white wine, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and dried pasta.
Simmer until the pasta is cooked, and finish the dish with heavy cream and a handful of cheese. The dish features everything that goes into French onion soup except the croutons.
However, with several TikTokers trying the recipe, variations have come into play. The recipe appears to work well with pasta cuts like bow ties, rigatoni, spaghetti, and rotini.
While certain recipes utilize Gruyère cheese — the traditional cheese that tops French onion soup — some opt for grated parmesan, and others use a delicious blend of both.
People also used balsamic vinegar, nutmeg, wine vinegar instead of wine, mushrooms, and alfredo sauce instead of heavy cream, making French onion pasta the ultimate comfort food.
