This was interesting. I used vidalia onions and added some chives for color. I found it to be quite sweet, probably a result of the vidalias. I served it over tri-colored fettuchini which really made a pretty plate! I'll try it again using regular onions. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe.

The simplicity of this recipe is what makes it so good. You may get the urge to "fancy it up," but do resist that urge! I used 1 tbsp olive oil and the other 1 tbsp of butter. I let the onions carmelize. It was delicious. Thanx for sharing this simple, gem of a recipe.
