My favorite thing about pasta is that you can always make a delicious meal, even if your pantry or veggie drawers are empty. Nothing in the house? Sprinkle pasta with salt, pepper and fresh Parmesan cheese. Or if you’ve got a few staples, you can make something a little more special.
We generally have onions in our house and we generally have some sort of cheese. It may not always be the cheese I want, but it would be a really sad day if we are completely cheese-less. When I was thinking about meals for the week I thought why not combine the sauteed onions and blue cheese that we love alongside grilled steak with some pasta. After-all, you can’t go wrong with pasta. The chewy fusilli with sweet onions and salty cheese turned out to be just what that steak needed. In fact, I don’t even think we needed the steak.
