ingredients

  • 1/2 pound pasta, of choice
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 onion, sliced into half moons
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup grated gruyere cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 ounces prosciutto
  • 1 (8 ounce) ball fresh burrata cheese
  • freshly cracked black peppercorns, to taste

Method

  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook to al dente, about 9 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan over medium heat, add butter and melt. Add sliced onions and cook until softened and brown, about 15 minutes. Deglaze the pan with white wine, scraping any brown bits that have formed on the bottom. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    In a medium sauce pan, add heavy cream and bring to a very gently simmer. Add gruyere and coat cheese and cook until melted, whisking over low heat for about 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    While the cheese sauce simmer, preheat the broiler to high. Add prosciutto to a sheet and place under the broiler for about 2 minutes, or until very crisp (keep a close eye on it!).

  • Step 5

    Toss the cooked pasta with onions and cream sauce. Add crispy prosciutto and burrata, then season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
