    Lalaloula's Note:

    This is a traditional Italian pasta dish, which my mum brought home from one of her trips to Italy. It has a creamy cheese note, which combines very well with the slightly bitter taste of the lettuce.

      YUM! The Picky One didn't like the bitterness of the radicchio but the rest of us loved it! I *did* use 2 very small radicchio. And I completely caramelized the onions. I also subbed 2 dried red chili peppers since I didn't have a fresh one. I did also use most excellent parmesan. It's all gone! Thank you, Loula! Made for Veggie Swap 1/11. :)

      Made this for lunch this past week. I had cut the recipe in half since we were only 2. I had made this in the morning and just needed to reheat a bit at lunch. I had put in the chili pepper or half of it anyways and it was a definitely zingy dish. I love spice and this definitely had that. So if your not into heat, skip the pepper. I also had a problem with the amount of onions, it just seemed like way too many. So I did cut back on them by using 1 medium to large size. The flavor was great with just that amount for me. The radicchio did add a nice flavor to the whole dish especially with the freshly grated parmesan cheese. Great tasting meal and thanks for sharing your recipe lalaloula. I will post pic when I can get my replacement computer.

      We really enjoyed this. My little girl really liked it! It was very different from the usual pasta dishes. I liked the mellow flavor of the onions with the radicchio and pasta. I would have never thought of adding radicchio to pasta this way. It's so unusual! I used a pound of medium shells instead of orecciette because that's what I had on hand. Like bluemoon downunder, I also left out the hot pepper and added a big fat tablespoon of minced garlic plus 3 Tbsp. of butter with my onions while they were cooking. I ended up adding 1/2 cup of gratged romano cheese. We will be having this agin. Thanks, Lalaloula! Made for Holiday tag.
