Ingredients

  • 2 onions
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 oz pasta
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 3 cups frozen peas
  • 4 oz goats cheese (1 supermarket log)
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Peel the onion and slice it into thin half moons.
  2. Add the olive oil to a large skillet then add in the onions and cook over a medium low heat for 6 minutes until softened.
  3. Add the vegetable stock to the onions and bring to a boil, reduce to a very low simmer.
  4. At this point bring a big pan of water to the boil, salt it generously and add the pasta. Set your timer for 2 minutes less than the packet suggests, as it will finish cooking in the vegetable stock.
  5. When the pasta has 2 minutes to go, add the frozen peas to the simmering vegetable stock.
  6. Reserve a cup of the pasta water and then drain.
  7. Turn the heat up to medium high under the stock and add the pasta.
  8. Stir well and cook for a further minute or until the pasta is cooked to your liking.
  9. Add pasta cooking if the pan gets to dry.
  10. Crumble over the goats cheese and plenty of black pepper.
