Serves: 4 Servings
Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ a yellow onion, peeled & chopped small
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 (16 oz) box uncooked rotini, or gameli pasta
  • 3 cups Chicken or Vegetable broth
  • 1 cup peas (Frozen or fresh)
  • ¼ cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet heat the oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add the onions and sauté onion for one minute or until soft.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Stir in the wine and allow reducing to half, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add ½ cup of broth and mix well.
  6. Add pasta and toss to coat, add another cup of broth and cover. (You want to keep a thin liquid barrier between the pasta and the bottom of the pan, to allow for steaming, but keep it from sticking to the bottom).
  7. Continuously add broth and toss pasta, while still slightly hard (not quite aldante) add frozen peas. Cover and continue to cook.
  8. When al dente, and peas are soft turn off heat. Add milk sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and toss again, until well coated.
  9. Adjust seasonings and serve immediately.
