FRENCHONION-INGREDIENTS

Method

  • Cook your pasta in heavily salted water as per packet instructions.
  • While the pasta is cooking, fry your onions & mushrooms in olive oil until the onions are caramelised.
  • Before you drain your pasta, remove half a cup of the cooking water and reserve.
  • Drain the pasta and place back in the warm pot.
  • Stir a quarter of the cooking water back through the pasta, along with the French Onion Dip. Add more water if needed – you’re looking for a creamy consistency.
  • Add half the mushroom and onion mix to the pasta and stir through.
  • Serve topped with the remaining mushroom & onion mix, and fresh thyme leaves.
