Linguine with Onion and Tomatoes

Linguine with Onion and Tomatoes recipe served in a large bowl.

Lasts nights pasta creation helped me clear out the fridge but more importantly (and obviously) tasted beyond delicious. I recently saw @emmalaperruque make an onion pasta so this was definitely my inspiration.

Onions when cooked slow take on a sweet taste. Patience is key but worth the wait. I had basil that needed to be used as well as a few chestnut mushrooms and cherry tomatoes.

This would be a perfect summer pasta but needed some weight (and protein) so I added navy beans. So darn good. Don’t be afraid of the amount of onion shown in the recipe. Give it a go and lmk how it goes!

This refreshing tomato and onion pasta is full of flavor and packed with a good amount of protein thanks to its navy beans.
