Egg Noodles With Three Onion Cream Sauce

Egg Noodles With Three Onion Cream Sauce

Three members of the onion family ~ sweet onions, shallots and leeks combine with butter and cream for a rich, but mildly flavored sauce for egg noodles. These noodles make a nice side for pungently flavored meats and poultry. We served them with Orange And Rosemary Sauced Pork Cutlets.

Egg Noodles With Three Onion Cream Sauce

  • Ingredients:
  • 8 ounces medium egg noodles
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 medium leek, sliced
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook the egg noodles in salted, boiling water according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.

Heat the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and just beginning to turn golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the shallots and leeks and continue cooking, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes longer. If you find the mixture is starting to brown, reduce the heat to medium-low.

Slowly add the cream, stirring constantly to combine. Add the drained noodles, combine well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the chives and serve.
