Caramelized Onion and Red Pepper Penne
- Heat the oil in large pan and cook the peppers over a medium heat for 15 minutes. Add the onion and cook for a further 30 minutes until the peppers and onions are nicely browned. You will need to keep them on a faitly high heat so that the moisture from the vegetables evaporates. Stir from time to time so they don't catch on the bottom and burn and add a splash more oil if they start to stick.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling. Drain the pasta well and return to the pan. Add the pepper mixture and the basil and mix well together.
- Divide between 4 bowls and scatter with freshly grated parmesan.
