Creamy French Onion Pasta Bake

50 minutes | Yield: 4 servings

This dish is a perfect combination of french onion soup and pasta with the added earthy flavor of fresh Thyme. It’s quick and easy to make and sure to be a crowd pleaser.


  • Avocado oil + butter, or use just avocado oil
  • Yellow onions
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Dry red wine
  • Broth. Vegetable, beef, or chicken. They all work great.
  • Baby Bella mushrooms
  • Garlic
  • Living Organic Thyme
  • Heavy cream or full-fat coconut milk
  • Pasta of choice. (Ziti works well)
  • Cheese, we like a combination of gruyere and parmesan


  1. Add oil and butter to a large pot. Add onion and a generous pinch of salt. Cook on medium-high heat until softened, about 8 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Pour in balsamic vinegar and 1/2 cup wine, a splash at a time. Keep cooking and stirring until onions are caramelized around 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, mushrooms, Living Organic Thyme and cook for a couple of minutes. Pour in broth, cream. Add a generous pinch of salt and pepper and pasta. Bring to a boil. Then, add pasta, cover, and cook until pasta is al-dente about 8-10 minutes, frequently stirring to make sure pasta cooks evenly.
  4. If using a dutch oven, sprinkle cheese on top and bake at 350F for 10 minutes or transfer pasta to a baking dish. Garnish with fresh thyme..
