Pasta with caramelized onions and parmesan
- 1 T. olive oil
- 3 med onions, halved and thinly sliced
- salt and pepper
- 2 T. brown sugar
- 1 package pasta
- 3 T. butter
- 2-3 oz. parmesan cheese
In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add sliced onions, salt and pepper, and brown sugar. Once juices are released, about 5 minutes, reduce heat to medium low and let onions cook slowly. Stir occasionally until sweet and golden brown.
In separate pot, cook pasta until al dente. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 C. of pasta water. Return pasta to pot, add butter and onions. Season with salt and pepper. Gradually add enough pasta water to create a thin sauce that coats the pasta. Serve topped with parmesan.
