ounces long pasta (I use a whole wheat linguini that I buy at the Farmer's Market)
tablespoons olive oil
medium yellow onion
ounces cream cheese
cups chopped mixed greens - I used turnip, mustard and collards
cup dry sherry
salt and pepper
teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
- Peel and slice the onion - I cut the halves into 3 and slice those. Heat a large skillet to medium and add the olive oil, then the onion. Stir and coat, then season the onion with a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are deep golden brown. Do not get distracted by your new glowing bat decoration and burn them.
- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil for the pasta.
- Add the greens, rosemary and sherry to the onions, and cook until the greens are nicely wilted but not mush. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
- Cook the pasta until al dente, then drain it quickly so there is still some water in there, and dump it into the skillet with the greens. Toss this around, then add the cream cheese in chunks and toss gently.
- Serve topped with a sprinling of parmesan cheese.
