Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
1 medium red onion
paper thin
2 heads radicchio
in one inch pieces
*
1 pound cheese tortellini
preferably goat cheese, 1 package
*
2 cups balsamella sauce
white sauce, e.g. bechamel
½ cup Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 425℉ (220℃). Bring 4 quarts of water to boil and add 1 tablespoon salt.

Heat oil in a 12 to 14-inch sauté pan until just smoking and add the red onions. Cook onions until beginning to soften but not brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Add radicchio and cook until softened, about 5 or 6 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool.

In the meantime, cook the tortellini in the boiling water and cook until tender. Drain in a colander and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooled onion & radicchio mixture, balsamella sauce, and half the grated cheese. Stir gently to combine.

Transfer to buttered gratin dish(es), sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese and bake until bubbly and crusty on top, about 20 minutes.

Serve immediately.

Balsamella

Make a roux: heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat until sizzling and whisk in 2 tablespoons flour. Cook for about 1 minute, then whisk in milk and 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Bring to the boil, whisking frequently and cook for 1 minute.

Balsamella is the Italian version of French Bechamel sauce or a simple white sauce. You could substitute your favorite jarred white sauce to save time if desired.
