12 SmartPoints per serving.
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 25 minutes
1½ tablespoons olive oil
350g prepared sliced red onions
1 teaspoon light brown soft sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
150ml vegetable stock, made with ½ stock cube
15g fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
75g medium-fat soft goat’s cheese
- Heat the oil a large nonstick pan over a medium-low heat then add the onions and brown sugar and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened.
- Add the vinegar, then add the stock, a splash at a time, cooking until the liquid is almost completely reduced before adding more – this should take about 3-4 minutes. Continue to cook for 10 minutes until the onions are softened and only a little liquid remains. Set aside a few onions, to garnish.
- Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti to pack instructions. Drain, reserving 150ml of the pasta water, and add the cooked pasta to the pan with the onions. Add a little of the reserved pasta water to loosen the sauce and help coat the pasta, then season to taste and toss with the parsley to combine.
- Divide between bowls, scatter over the reserved onions, crumble over the goat’s cheese and serve.
