Creamed Scallions on Pasta

Source: Everyday Food, May 2005


  • 4 bunches scallions, sliced crosswise 3/4 inch thick (about 5 cups)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces thin spaghetti


  1. In a large skillet, combine scallions, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 cup water; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until scallions wilt and pan is almost dry, 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Add cream; stir to coat. Cover; reduce heat to low, and cook at a bare simmer (cream will separate if boiled), stirring occasionally, until scallions are tender, 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and return to pot.

  4. Toss pasta with warm sauce and reserved pasta water; season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
