A RECIPE FOR WORLD PASTA DAY (OCTOBER 25)

A RECIPE FOR WORLD PASTA DAY (OCTOBER 25)

Take a break from carving pumpkins and sneaking fun-sized candy bars, it's World Pasta Day!  

Recognized every 25th of October, World Pasta Day comes at the perfect time of year when the weather gets chilly and a warm meal officially replaces cold summer dishes.  

The first World Pasta Day was established in Rome during a meeting of the World Pasta Congress (yup, that's a real thing), and the beauty is there's no strict way to celebrate.

Except, of course, indulging in your favorite spaghetti, macaroni, penne, or pasta nest.  

Don't have a family recipe? Here's a mouth-watering classic from Grand'Mere- the family-owned pasta maker from Alsace, France famous for its traditional free-range egg pasta. With a boost of protein, Grand'Mere pasta is loved by health-conscious eaters who want to indulge without feeling weighted down. 

Made with free-range eggs and USDA certified Organic ingredients, Grand'Mere uses a unique organic durum wheat semolina to create a pasta that is satisfying yet light on the stomach.

Pasta is a tradition at Grand'Mere and one bite of Pasta with Caramelized Onions, Raclette & Ham is delicious proof.  

Now the only question remains: do you cut, twirl, or spoon? 

Pasta Nests with Caramelized Onions, Raclette & Ham 

Serves: 6 

Preparation time: 15 minutes  

Cooking Time: 20 minutes 

World Pasta Day

Ingredients:  

2 onions 

1 knob of butter 

350g 10mm Grand'Mere Nests

150ml pouring cream 

150g raclette cheese 

10g thinly sliced Parma ham 

Salt 

Pepper 

Pinch of sugar 

Method:  

Peel onions and finely chop them. Heat a frying pan to high heat and add a knob of butter to sauté the onions. Season them with salt. After 5 minutes, lower the heat and let them soften and caramelize with a pinch of sugar.  

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to boil and add the pasta nests. Cook for 8 minutes.  

As the pasta cooks, make the sauce by bringing cream to boil and add caramelized onions, cheese, and pepper. Rest the mixture for 5 minutes. Puree the mixture using a hand-held blender and keep warm.  

Once the pasta is cooked, drain quickly and add to the sauce. Add a little of the cooking water if needed and mix together well. Arrange on a plate with thin slices of Parma ham on top. Season with a twist of the pepper mill.  

Serve and celebrate. Happy World Pasta Day, everyone!
