French Onion Pasta

Wow. This is truly excellent. The whole family loved this recipe from Stephanie at Stephanie Cooks. This one is going onto our list of regulars! The best thing is that it is so delicious and so cheap!
Next time, I will double the recipe so we have enough for leftovers:)

French Onion Pasta

2 c. of uncooked rotini pasta
1 c. chicken stock
1 packet of Lipton's Onion Soup mix
1 scallion, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
1/2 cup of Marsala wine (I just used Sherry)
4 tablespoons of light cream
1 tablespoon of flour
1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon of EVOO

Cook pasta and keep warm. In a saucepan, heat the EVOO. Add the scallions and garlic, stir continually until soft and fragrant. Add the wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to remove any pieces of onion. Add the stock and soup mix packets, allow to cook on low for about 20 minutes.
Whisk in flour, whisking continually until well incorporated and thickened. Add the light cream, mix well. Add the pasta to the sauce, stir well. Pour into an oven safe dish. Top with the mozzarella cheese. Set it under the broiler until the cheese is golden.
