Caramelized Onion and Garlic Pasta
I got the recipe from a Taste of Home magazine that was at my mom's house. I didn't take a very good picture of it, so I'll probably take another one the next time I make it.
2 red onions, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp salt
8 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 - 16 oz pkg angel hair pasta
9 strips of turkey bacon, crumbled
Cook onions, pepper flakes, garlic and salt in some butter for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the grape tomatoes and vinegar.
During this time, cook the pasta, and fry the turkey bacon.
Then, drain pasta and toss with onion mixture. Sprinkle with bacon.
Note: The original recipe also called to be sprinkled with 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, but I skipped that to save on money, because that's how I roll. (Also skipped the 1/4 cup olive oil that was added the same time as the vinegar and tomatoes.)
