Most of my trips to Paris have been in the fall and winter seasons, when it’s been chilly and sometimes frigid outside. I am a lover of cold weather, so this suits me perfectly fine. I feel like it makes the cafes especially cozy and inviting, and the warm meals taste all the better. One of my favorite bistro items to order during these trips is French onion soup. I love the salty, rich flavor of the onion soup, as well as its comforting appeal on a cold day. Those are the qualities I was looking to embrace and incorporate when I decided to create this French onion pasta bake.
