Caramelized Onion, Spinach, and Goat Cheese Pasta


This was soooo easy. And delicious. It is the type of dish that doesn’t really matter if you change it or guestimate on the amounts of each ingredient. It’s one of those pasta dishes that you see online and love the combination, but when you go to make the actual recipe, the combination is all you use, not paying attention to the amounts of each thing, which is what makes it delicious, so what I am telling you to do is Go For It. Don’t worry about proportions or the type of noodles, or even if you have the right vegetables, just make it. Go on, it won’t take long.



1 tablespoon Olive Oil or butter

1-2 large sweet onions (get vidalia onions if you can, they make the best caramelized onions, but any other type of yellow onion will do)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 pound pasta of your choice

1 enormous box of spinach (this would be good with just about any green leafy thing except   lettuce I guess, but try kale, snap peas, or asparagus.)

1 large package of goat cheese




1. Slice the onions, very thin with a serrated knife.

2. Heat the olive oil or butter in a pan and add the onions, salt, and sugar at medium low heat. Cook until the onions are soft, browned and sweet.

3. Boil water for the pasta. Cook the pasta until it reaches the desired texture. Then drain the pasta in a colander.

4.  As the Pasta cooks, begin to saute the spinach, adding a little bit of oil into a large pan, then putting in as much spinach as you can fit. Once the spinach has cooked down a bit in the pan, add more until you run out, stirring as best you can to make sure it all cooks pretty evenly.

5. Once all the pieces are prepared, stir everything together adding about half the goat cheese, leaving some for a garnish.
