Ingredients

  • 6 bacon (about 6 oz/175 g) chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 onions (about 3 lbs/1.5 kg) sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoons each salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lb fettuccine
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pkg (4 oz/125 g) soft goat cheese

Method

In nonstick skillet, fry bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; transfer to paper towel-lined plate. Drain fat from pan.

Add oil to pan; heat over medium heat. Cook onions, salt and pepper until softened and golden, about 15 minutes. Stir in half of the parsley; cook for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until tender but firm, 8 to 10 minutes. Reserving 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cooking liquid, drain and return to pot.

Add vinegar, goat cheese, bacon, reserved cooking liquid and onion mixture to pasta; toss to coat. Serve sprinkled with remaining parsley.
