total time


1/4 cup olive oil

3-4 yellow onions, thinly sliced

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced

1 tbsp fresh thyme

1/2 cup dry white wine

2 tbsp all purpose flour

2 cups beef broth (or vegetable broth)

2 cups water

16 oz dried orecchiette or other short cut pasta

1 tbsp sherry vinegar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Fresh herbs and toasted breadcrumbs for serving (optional)


Heat oil over a large skillet over medium heat. When shimmering, add the onions and a generous pinch of salt. Cook, stirring frequently until deeply caramelized. About 25-30 minutes.

While onions are cooking, slice mushrooms and mince garlic.

Add the garlic, mushrooms and thyme. Sauté for 3-4 minutes or until the mushrooms begin to soften. Add the wine to deglaze the pan and add the flour. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until thickened.

Pour in the beef stock (or vegetable stock) and water. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil then add the pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. (Keep in mind that other pasta shapes will have different cook times).

Turn off the heat and stir in the sherry vinegar. Serve warm.
