Parmesan Onion Sauce
This Parmesan Onion Sauce uses minimal ingredients and tastes fabulous!
- 1 Tablespoon oil
- 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- Pinch of ground cloves
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
In a medium sauce pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Once warm, add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally until softened. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic, a small pinch of ground cloves, and some salt and pepper to taste. Stir for a minute or two, until fragrant. Add the heavy cream and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and stirring constantly, slowly add the Parmesan cheese. The key is to add the cheese slowly while constantly stirring so that you do not have clumps. Continue to stir for a few minutes to ensure that the cheese melts and the sauce is smooth. Since this recipe has onions in it, there will be some texture from the onions. Feel free to blend it if you want it to be completely smooth. Enjoy!
If this sauce is not used right away and is instead refrigerated for later use, it will thicken up. Simply warm up when ready to use, and add a splash or two of milk to thin the mixture to a desired thickness.
