Fennel-and-Onion Spaghetti

Ingredients

Salt and pepper
1 pound spaghetti or whole wheat spaghetti
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large bulb fennel, thinly sliced
1 large onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon or orange peel
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 Belgian endive, thinly sliced
Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving a ladleful of the pasta cooking water.
  2. While the pasta is working, in a large skillet, heat the EVOO, 3 turns of the pan, over medium heat. Add the fennel and onion and cook until softened, 20 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme and lemon peel and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the wine and parsley and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in the pasta and enough of the reserved pasta cooking water to moisten as desired. Stir in the endive; season with salt and pepper. Top with the cheese and pine nuts.

Serves 4.
