Penne with Caramelized Onions and Fontina

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

The more caramelized onions the better I say!! This is good and the Fontina cheese is a nice change from parmesan. A colourful veggie and a small salad and dinner is served.

Wonderful! I loved the hint of sage in this. I also opted to use 1 1/2 cups of cheese, since I love Fontina. Delicious. :)
