Full Harvest:

Broccolette, Golden Zucchini, Red Cabbage, Red Onions, Yellow nectarines, Yellow Peaches, Haas Avocados, Ambrosia melon, Russet Potatoes. 


Broccolette with Carmelized Onions

1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 large onion or 2or 3 small medium (about 1 lb.), thinly sliced
1 bunch Broccolette
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 lb. pasta (linguine or other long, thin shape)

Saute onions over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 20 minutes. If the onions start to burn, lower the heat. They should be richly colored to bring out their sweetness.

Meanwhile, bring several quarts of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Roughly chop the greens and stem of the Broccolette and boil in the hot water and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Add the garlic to the pan with the onions and cook for 1 minute. Add the Broccolette, S & P and cook, stirring occasionally, until the Broccolette is tender, about 5 minutes. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust seasonings if necessary.

While preparing the sauce, cook and drain the pasta, making sure that some liquid still clings to the noodles. Toss the hot pasta with the Broccolette sauce. Mix well and transfer portions to warm pasta bowls. Drizzle each bowl with olive oil to taste and serve immediately
