Description

In this irresistible, fragrant dinner, the flavors of French onion soup are combined with pasta and asparagus. It's a big hit in our family, and something even my picky kids will eat!

Preparation

1. Melt butter in a Dutch oven or large skillet. Add onions, garlic, thyme and bay leaf; season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until onions are softened and caramel in color, about 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to directions on package in boiling salted water. During the last 4 minutes of cooking, stir in asparagus spears. Drain pasta and asparagus; set aside and keep warm.

3. When onions are caramelized, stir in flour until coated. Stir in beef stock, scraping browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Heat to boiling, then reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in heavy cream. Add onions and sauce to the reserved pasta and asparagus.

4. Spread the pasta in an oven-safe dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

5. Combine olive oil and breadcrumbs; sprinkle evenly over cheese.

6. Broil in the oven until the breadcrumbs begin to brown and the cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Serve immediately.

I can't wait to try this! I just bought a GIANT bag of fresh asparagus at Costco and I'm trying to figure out how to use all of it! Thanks, Cassie!

Wow!!!! what a recipe. Asparagus is something new for my husband and I. Our Son has made it for us a few times on the grill and we were hooked. I will be making this pasta dish for sure. Thanks for sharing.
