Cooking time

20 minutes




770 /serving

He shoots, you score! This winning recipe gets the nod from Nick Suzuki, Montreal Canadiens captain. We believe that the act of caramelizing onions is an act of love. So while the slices soften in a pat of butter and a bouquet of dried herbs, meditate on all the things you’re grateful for in life. Then splash in some vinegar to deglaze the pan, pour on the cream and demi-glace, and give thanks for how easily freshly boiled cheese tortellini makes for a memorable dinner. Toss together a salad of baby greens, radish rounds and chives for crisp contrast.

We will send you:

  • 100g Radishes (or French radishes)

Make the caramelized onion
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. In a large pan, heat 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Add the onion and sauté, 5 to 7 min., until lightly browned; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Add 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions) and sauté, 2 to 4 min., until the onion is very tender; season with S&P. Add ½ the vinegar and sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until evaporated.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Add the pasta and 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); stir well. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
