Foodies Winter Pasta


450g pasta (any shape)

foodies Organic Flaky Sea Salt

Black Pepper

¼ cup foodies Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 yellow onions – halved and thinly sliced

8 garlic cloves smashed and sliced

½ cup pitted and chopped olives

½ cup chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, chives and/or mint

Juice from ½ lemon

Grated Parmesan for serving


Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions for al dente

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over high. Add onions and garlic and cook, tossing occasionally until beginning to brown and blister, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and several grinds pepper and continue to cook, tossing, until mostly dark brown all over, 6 to 8 minutes more. Reduce the heat as low as it will go while the pasta finishes cooking.

Using tongs, transfer pasta directly to the skillet along with 1 cup pasta water. Increase heat to high and cook, tossing, until liquid thickens and coats the pasta, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add olives, herbs and lemon juice and toss to combine. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if you like. Serve topped with Parmesan.
