  • 1 1/2 lb Onions, thinly sliced

Grated Parmesan cheese,

1. In large nonstick skillet heat oil. Add sliced onions and cook over high
heat until onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes. If they begin to burn a
little, that's o.k. too.

2. Lower the heat and add salt, sugar and spices. Cook 10 minutes, stirring
often, until onions are uniformly caramel-colored. Add water and vinegar
and cover. Simmer while the pasta is cooking.

3. Meanwhile, in a separate pot, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Cook
pasta al dente. Drain well.

4. Divide pasta equally into 4 heated bowls. Top with equal portions of
caramelized onions and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
