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.
