Bowtie Pasta with Shiitake Mushrooms & Caramelized Onions

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


For the longest time, I could not bring myself to eat onions. Unless they were battered and fried into a delicious ring, I wasn't having it. Somewhere around the time I hit 30, all of that changed. Now I use them frequently in most of my meals, though I don't eat them raw (my mom always munches on raw green onions, ewww!) But, baked, fried or sauteed? Pile it up! One of my favorite ways to add onions to a meal is when they are caramelized, so when I saw this Bowtie  Pasta with Shiitake Mushrooms and Caramelized Onions, I almost drooled down my chin. A lot of my favorite foods, pasta, mushrooms, peppers, and caramelized onions all in one dish? Oh, this girl can't resist!

Bowtie Pasta & Veggies

I've always just caramelized my onions in butter, but this recipe has you adding in honey to the caramelizing process. Ya'll, if you have never added honey to your pan, you are missing out! I will never make these onions any other way again! Since this has quickly become a family favorite recipe, I like to take this dish outside and enjoy the warm spring breeze and catch up on the events of the day with the family. It's a perfect meal to end the day.

  2. It is blasphemy not loving onions or garlic :) I do only cook, fry and use raw red onions, not the regular ones, since red ones are more tender and quicker to fry and they don't even smell that nasty in salads. I ate them with sesame breaded smoked tofu yesterday in a salad with tomatoes and celery salt and some oil. Dipping bread into the juice that is left on the bottom of the dish is sweet heaven itself :)

    Never had me shitake, but we do have shitake humus here and sometimes I buy it, but I'm not an overly big fan of humus if chickpeas and garlic in it aren't cooked first.

    You know that my fave pasta is the ones with paprika and potatoes that I gave you the recipe for

    1. I do like the shiitake mushrooms quite well, but do find that I prefer the texture of bella mushrooms more. I also like the yellow sweet onions over the white and the red, but I'll eat any of them sauteed these days. And garlic is a must for most of our dishes too!

    2. ooh, I've never had nor heard of yellow sweet onions, but they sound delish.

    3. No? They are my favorite of the bunch. Absolutely delish!

    4. no, even chives are hard to find here unless you grow them yourself, it is actually currently a bit difficult to find garlic as well since the new one hasn't yet arrived so they blew up the prices on what is left in stock. I swear I could not imagine food without onions and garlic, no matter the smell after eating. I even use tons of dried garlic and onions. I'm currently looking forward to spring potatoes, those are just now slowly arriving to the green market!

    5. If I could cook (IF...), I would need garlic and onions.

  3. Pasta was all I used to eat as a kid. Grew out of it though and haven't had it since.

    1. Hopefully not that icky canned crap. My niece used to eat ravioli from a can all day long. So gross!

  4. Most definitely caramelized onions are the best. My fave! Especially on top of a nice juicy fat burger with bacon! :-)

  5. This looks so good! I have to admit, I'm usually a lover of plain noodles with butter, but this looks amazing.

  6. This is a nice, light dish for this hot weather we're having. I haven't tried to carmelize onions with honey in the pan, but it does sound like a fun way to switch things up a little.

  13. Yum yum. This looks so good. I am all about adding a ton of vegetables to a little pasta. If I eat too much pasta, my guts hate me lol
