  • 16 ounces linguini pasta cooked
  • ½ cup reserved pasta water from the cooked pasta
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup yellow onion diced (1 small)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • ½ cup pecorino romano cheese grated


  • 1 tablespoon everything bagel seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped (optional)


  • In a large stockpot, cook your linguini pasta according to package instructions (9 to 11 minutes). When pasta is done cooking, reserve ½ cup of the starchy pasta water in a separate bowl to be used for later. Drain the remaining liquid. Set aside.
  • While your pasta is cooking, in a large skillet on medium-high heat saute your butter, onions, everything bagel seasoning, salt, and pepper. Saute the onions for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are soft and translucent.
  • Add the flour to the onions and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, until you no longer see raw flour.
  • Whisk the reserved pasta water into the flour mixture, making sure you do not have any lumps remaining.
  • Add the cream cheese to the flour and onion mixture. Stir the cream cheese around so that it melts into the flour mixture and is smooth.
  • Slowly add the milk to the cream cheese mixture. Allow this sauce to cook and thicken for 3 to 5 minutes. Make sure to whisk constantly to avoid any lumps from forming.
  • Add the grated pecorino-romano cheese to the sauce and stir to combine.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss it to coat it entirely in the sauce.
  • You can garnish the Everything Bagel Pasta with the additional everything bagel seasoning and chopped fresh parsley if desired.
