This recipe was prepared using Braun’s MultiQuick Hand blender with its food processor and 1.5 cup chopper attachments.


  • 12 oz. (340 g) orecchiette pasta
  • 2 large red onions, about 1 pound (450 g)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 20 basil leaves + additional for garnish
  • 1 ½ oz. (40 g) feta cheese
  • 1 ½ oz. (40 g) parmesan cheese + additional for serving
  • 20 pitted black olives, cut in half

  1. This is the perfect dish to impress your vegetarian friends – not only is it quick and easy, but it’s delicious too! Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile attach a suitable hand blender to Braun’s MultiQuick 7 Hand blender with food processor attachment with its slicing insert to slice really even onion slices, extremely fast without tearing eyes. Slice all of the onions.
  3. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large saucepan and add the sliced onions. Cook for about 30 minutes on medium heat uncovered stirring often with a wooden spoon until onions are softened and caramelized but not browned.  Season with salt and pepper.
  4. While onions are cooking, use the MultiQuick 7 1.5-cup chopper attachment with the suitable hand blender to chop the basil leaves.  Place basil in a small bowl and clean out chopper.  Repeat with feta and parmesan cheese, placing each into separate small bowl wiping out the chopper bowl after each addition.
  5. Drain pasta reserving 1 cup of the hot cooking water. Add pasta to the bowl and stir in onions, feta, olives and 1 ½ ounces of parmesan cheese.  Season with salt and pepper. If needed, gradually add a little pasta water to moisten pasta. Garnish with basil and serve with additional parmesan cheese.
