2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

2 Large White Onions, Sliced Thinly

2 Garlic Cloves, Minced

2 Teaspoons Fresh Thyme Leaves

12 Ounces Angel Hair Pasta

½ Cup Bread Crumbs

1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

4 Ounces Crumbled Feta Cheese

Salt And Pepper, To Taste


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, thyme, and ½ teaspoon salt, and lower the heat to low. Cook, stirring regularly, until the onions are caramelized and jammy, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water and drain the pasta.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Spread out on a baking sheet and broil for 1-2 minutes, until golden and toasted. Remove the breadcrumbs from the oven and set aside.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to the caramelized onions, along with ¾ cup pasta water. Stir and add more water as necessary to create a silky sauce that coats the noodles.
  5. Stir in the feta to combine fully. Season with salt and pepper and top with toasted breadcrumbs to serve.
