Whole-Grain Penne with Walnuts Caramelized Onions and Ricotta Salata
Iain Bagwell

Whole-Grain Penne with Walnuts Caramelized Onions and Ricotta Salata

The penne's little ridges have a way of trapping the light lemon and olive oil dressing and crumbles of cheese.

Recipe: Whole-Grain Penne with Walnuts Caramelized Onions and Ricotta Salata

Pair with: Chardonnay. Nuts and onions bring out good things in Chardonnay, and besides the walnuts, the whole-grain pasta has a nuttiness about it that doubles the effect. Our bottle pick also has a tangy side that matches the cheese. Recommended bottle: Jasper Woods 2008 Chardonnay (Mendocino County).
