"Kasha is actually buckwheat and is a whole grain. It is mixed with onions and egg noodles to make this very simple and traditional Western European side dish. It is a staple at our holiday table and delicious drenched in pot roast or turkey gravy."

  1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil with the kasha. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  2. Bring pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Pour the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil until lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir the drained pasta and kasha into the onions, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

In my Eastern European home this dish is tops; especially when served with a slow roasted chicken. I add a drained can of mushrooms to this recipe...perfection!

This is my first experience with Kasha and it was very tasty. I sauteed the kasha in a hot pan for 2-3 minutes before cooking (based on another eview's remark to keep it from getting mushy) I a...
