Pasta with Caramelized Onions
1. Caramelize 2 lbs. sweet onions (vidalia is a favorite of mine), remove from skillet, set aside. (Tutorial for caramelizing onions is HERE.)
2. In skillet, add 8 oz. dry pasta (either angel hair or birds nests). Cook and stir for 4-6 minutes or until pasta is browned.
3. Add caramelized onions plus 2 cups of water to skillet. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and cook 5 minutes. Uncover and cook 5 more minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.
You could serve this pasta alone. I served it tonight alongside ham and a few leftovers sides.
