This French onion sausage pasta is as rich and creamy as you could want on a cold winter day, and it’s also a convenient, one-pot meal that cooks in less than half an hour. Ready to dig in?

Start by heating some olive oil over medium-high heat in a soup pot large enough to accommodate the entire final dish, then add diced onion and ground sausage, along with some extra onion powder and garlic powder for flavor. Season it with salt and pepper and mix it well, then cook the mixture until the sausage is nice and brown.

Instead of ground sausage, the author says you could also use ground beef, chicken, or even meatballs, depending on what you have a taste for, or what’s in your freezer that night. Whichever you choose, the instructions are the same. Just cook the meat with the onions and seasonings until browned, then pour a can of condensed French onion soup and some beef broth over that base, and mix in two cups of uncooked egg noodles. To make it extra creamy, add half a cup of cream cheese to the pot, then let everything come to a boil and cook until the noodles are done, which should take about eight to 10 minutes.

Cooking the noodles in beef broth and French onion soup makes them intensely flavorful, and it also means you don’t have to wash another pot. Once the noodles are fully cooked, take the pot off the heat and add half a cup of full-fat sour cream and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese. This recipe really does not kid around when it comes to cream, but it delivers a creamy, cheesy, meaty pasta that tastes like what would happen if French onion soup and macaroni and cheese had a baby. To really get that French onion soup experience, serve the pasta with some nice, crusty garlic bread, and be ready for people to ask you to make this again.
