Step 1: First, chop all of your vegetables, i left the onions in rounds, chopped the mushrooms thinly but whole and diced the pepper, but it’s up to you how small you like your veggies.
Step 2: put your onions in a frying pan with your oil on a low heat, make sure you watch them carefully so they don’t fry, stir often until softened and turning brown.
Step 3: begin to cook your pasta at this point.
Step 4: return to the onions and add the sugar, make sure you stir it in well so all the onion comes into contact with it.
Step 5: cook slowly for around 20 minutes, paying careful attention to the onions so they do not burn. Make sure you stir your pasta also.
Step 6: when your pasta is almost done, throw in the pepper and mushrooms and stir well. (this is where you would also add any leftover veg).
Step 7: when the pasta is cooked, drain and leave in the pan, add enough herby cream cheese to coat each piece of pasta evenly.
Step 8: transfer your pasta to a plate, top with the caramelised onion mixture
Step 9: if desired, sprinkle with parmesan, or cheddar, or whatever cheese you want!
