Balsalmic Pasta recipe {Lauren from Elephant’s Trunk}

Hello everyone! My name is Lauren and I blog at The Elephant’s Trunk and I also have an Etsy store of the same name. I’m so excited to be here today. I want to thank Linda for allowing me to take over her fantastic blog for a little bit.
I love pasta but as the summer months approach I like to whip up pasta that has a little lighter sauce to it and is a little more friendly during the warmer months. This recipe for a balsamic pasta was created using items I had already at home. I tend to avoid grocery shopping at all costs so this worked out very well for me. It is a very easy recipe to throw together, enjoy!
Balsalmic Pasta: -1/2 finely chopped white onion
-Take 2 cups of cherry tomatoes and slice into halves
– Mince four cloves of garlic
-Finley chop 1/2 an onion
-Place all the chopped items in a sauce pan and cook on medium heat
-Add a half a cup of olive oil
-Add a quarter cup of balsamic
-Let all the items caramelize in the sauce pan
(please excuse the mess on the stove- when I cook I happen to make quite the mess!)

-While the items in the sauce pan are caramelizing start cooking whole wheat spaghetti noodles in a large pot
-When the noodles have finished drain, place in bowl and top with contents of sauce pan
-Add some fresh mozzarella balls to the top
-Top with fresh Parmesan and serve
Thank you Linda for having me here at your fabulous blog and I hope all your readers enjoyed my summer baslamic pasta!
