For a simple, savory dish cook chopped onions in olive oil and ready-made pesto. Toss with hot pasta and grated Parmesan cheese, then serve up hot or cold. Either way it's deliciously easy!
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 2 1/2 tablespoons pesto
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 (16 ounce) package pasta
- salt to taste
- ground black pepper to taste
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium low heat. Add pesto, onion, and salt and pepper. Cook about five minutes, or until onions are soft.
In a large bowl, mix pesto mixture into pasta. Stir in grated cheese. Serve.
