Ingredients for Alison Roman’s Caramelized Shallot Pasta

I prepared this dish for my girlfriend and the first thing that came to both of our minds was this: How can this flavor come out with just shallot? I am sure there will be people around you who will think the same. Because the main ingredients are pasta and shallot. The fact that the shallot is caramelized adds a very interesting flavor to this seemingly simple dish. You will love this recipe.

Let us take a closer look at the ingredients.

  • 250 g ( 9 ounces) Linguini
