This recipe is not low fat. But, as I always say, if you are cooking from scratch and staying away from processed foods, a little fat is okay. Feel free to use whole wheat pasta instead. It would work just as well.
5-6 medium Vidalia (sweet) onions, thinly sliced
1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil
a splash of red wine vinegar
1 lb of any short pasta of choice (elbow macaroni, ziti)
4 tbs flour
4 tbs Smart Balance butter (or your own butter of choice)
6 cups of Hood Simply Smart fat free milk (or your own choice of milk)
3 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese (eyeball this)
a splash of hot sauce (I use Chalula)
2 cups of baby spinach leaves
2 large sliced tomatoes (I used homegrown green tomatoes-orange tomatoes would be fun too)
salt and pepper to taste.
In a medium nonstick pan, add oil and onions on medium to high heat. Saute for 15-25 minutes until golden brown and very soft. Add vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
