    Very interesting! Like nothing I've ever tasted. I only used 5 onions, and only 8 oz. of FETA (couldn't find ricotta salata anywhere). I really liked it, husband thought it was "okay". It didn't seem to need any of the "reserved cooking water", so I omitted that.

    Delicious! Love this flavor combo! Made with egg noodles instead of whole-wheat penne. Would definitely make again -- the dish comes out pretty enough to serve to company, especially vegetarians.

    Love this recipe. I make it all the time w/brown rice penne. The combination of carmelized onions, toasted walnuts, flat leaf parsley and ricotta salata is amazing. I tend to make the recipe a little drier by not adding water and using more pasta than called for. It makes great leftovers too.

    i'd been holding onto this recipe for a while, and finally got around to making it. It was delicious! i only made half the recipe, but otherwise followed it as it said. great nutty flavor balanced by the lemon and parsley. will definitely make again.
