Easy Pasta - gemelli with sugar snap peas

10 minutes, 7 ingredients, serves 4.

1/2 lb gemelli pasta (or any short cut pasta; interesting tidbit, gemelli means twins - it looks like two intertwining tubes)
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced, caramelized
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon honey (optional)
1 cup sugar snap peas, cut into small pieces
1 cup grated Asiago cheese (you can use parmesan or any other salty, sharp Italian cheese)
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  1. Cook and drain pasta (al dente)
  2. Cook onions in olive oil on low heat until brown and caramelized. Use honey to help speed up the caramelization process, or if the onions are not sweet enough
  3. Turn off the heat and add sugar snap peas and crushed red pepper flake
  4. Grate cheese
  5. Toss in pasta
  6. Add cheese and toss again
  7. Serve
