      Pasta with Onion, Bacon, and Goat Cheese

      Ingredients:

      1 pound Penne Pasta

      4 slices (4 ounces) bacon, sliced crosswise 1 inch thick

      4 medium red onions, thinly sliced

      2 garlic cloves, chopped

      1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving

      Coarse salt and ground pepper

      4 ounces soft goat cheese

      Method of Preparation:

      1. Cook pasta. Drain, reserving 2 cups pasta water; return pasta to pot.

      2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in large skillet over medium, turning, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes; remove to a paper-towel-lined plate.

      3. Add onions, garlic, and thyme to fat in skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to brown, about 15 minutes. Uncover; cook until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes more.

      4. Crumble goat cheese over pasta; add onion mixture and 1 cup reserved pasta water. Season with salt and pepper. Toss, adding more pasta water as desired. Serve immediately, sprinkled with bacon and more thyme.
