The Crucial Finishing Touch When Making One-Pot French Onion Pasta
While the flavor of your French onion pasta dish will depend on the recipe you follow, there's one overlooked ingredient that can significantly elevate any version of this dish.
Sherry vinegar is an affordable ingredient that can balance the flavors of your one-pot French onion pasta, adding a fresh acidity to the rich dish that's been cooked for a while.
Like most vinegars, sherry vinegar is best used as a finishing touch, added towards the end of your cooking process. Use it sparingly, as it has quite a potent taste.
Simply drizzle a little bit of the vinegar into your pasta pot off of the heat and give it a quick stir to blend the ingredients. The finished pasta will have much more depth.
If you can't find sherry vinegar, red or white wine vinegar can serve as an excellent substitute. Alternatively, you can also use apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
