Recipe Ingredients for Caramelized Onion "Arrabiata" Sauce

3 tsp olive oil
1 large yellow onion, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
8 oz white mushrooms, diced
3 tbsp garlic, minced
12 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
9 oz tomato paste
1/4 cup fresh basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper

Recipe Directions for Caramelized Onion "Arrabiata" Sauce

  1. Heat olive oil in the saucepan and add the onions and kosher salt, saute covered, stirring occasionally, over medium to medium high heat for about twenty minutes until caramelized. Don't worry about the brown sticky bits on the bottom of the pan. Onions should be extremely soft, light brown. Set aside in a bowl.

  2. Using the same pan raise the heat to medium high and add the mushrooms. Don't worry if things start to get sticky, the mushrooms will start to loose their moisture which will help things along. Once the mushrooms start giving up their water stir constantly to loosen up the brown bits from the onions.

  3. After about 5 minutes and the brown bits have loosened from the bottom of the pan, add the garlic, chicken stock, tomato paste, basil and thyme.

  4. Simmer covered, over low heat for about 15 minutes. Add the crushed red pepper and cover, simmering for about 10 minutes more.

  5. Season with salt to taste right before serving over pasta of your choice.

  6. Yields six 1/2 cup servings.
