Recipe: Garlic, Red Pepper, and Olive Oil pasta Dressing

I had been seeing a recipe floating around Pinterest, something about lemon, olive oil, and garlic coated pasta.

So I put my own spin it: minced caramelized onions and garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme sprigs, kosher salt, pepper, all sautéed in olive oil.

I omitted the lemon since the husband isn't a fan... And added onions because who doesn't love caramelized onions?

Also, we added some shrimp and I threw some dethawed frozen peas in for more greens... And topped with Parmesan Cheese!

The fun thing about this recipe is that it is so versatile: you don't need pasta to make it happen. I recreated it again with a cup of cous cous, added sautéed chicken breast, and ate it over romain lettuce.

Healthy. Flavorful. Light. And totally doable any time!

1 onion minced finely
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and Cracked pepper to taste
1-2 sprigs of thyme
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil

Sauté together until onions are caramelized.

After pasta is drained, or cous cous is ready *, coat evenly with the olive oil dressing and serve with some grated Parmesan cheese on top.
