I’ve had this recipe pinned forever and the BFF made it awhile ago and liked it. This came out super yummy! Will definitely make it again!


French onion pasta
adapted from stephaniecooks

2 cups of uncooked penne pasta
1 to 1.5 cup of chicken stock
1 packet of Lipton’s Onion Soup mix
1 shallot, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
4 tablespoons of milk
1 tablespoon of flour
1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon of EVOO
1-2 cups shredded cooked chicken (I used rotisserie)

1- Cook pasta according to directions, set aside and keep warm.
2- In a saucepan, heat the EVOO. Add the shallots and garlic, stir continually until soft and fragrant.
3- Add 1/2 cup stock scraping the bottom of the pan to remove any stuck on pieces of onion.
4- Add the remaining stock and soup mix packet, allow to cook on low for about 20 minutes.
5- Stir in flour, whisking continually until well incorporated and thickened.
6- Add the milk, mix well.
7- Add the pasta to the sauce, stir well. Stir in chicken.
8- Pour into an oven safe dish. Top with the mozzarella cheese.
9- Set it under the broiler until the cheese gets a little crispy.
