Pasta with caramelised red onions and blue cheese

This is perfect for a tasty midweek supper, blue cheese fans will love the creaminess and saltiness of the melted cheese with the sweetness of the caramelised red onions. A great vegetarian meal, although I think that crispy bacon might have been a good addition.

Serves 2
Olive oil
Pasta penne
2 red onions chopped into small wedges (I used one red onion for four of us)
1 tsp caster sugar
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
75g of soft blue cheese, such as gorgonzola or dolcelatte (I used St Agur)
1 tbsp lightly toasted pine nuts

Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the red onions until tender. Add the sugar and balsamic vinegar and cook further until they start to caramelise and become sticky.  Cook the pasta in salted boiling water and when cooked ,drain and add to the onions. Add the crumbled blue cheese and top with the toasted pine nuts.
