I've always loved the taste of Cheddar cheese with bacon, and I thought caramelized onions would be an interesting addition to this flavor combination.
medium onions, thinly sliced (4 cups)
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
tablespoons butter or margarine
package (16 ounces) fettuccine
pound sliced bacon
cups whipping (heavy) cream
cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
Place onions, oil and butter in 3-quart microwavable casserole. Microwave uncovered on Medium-High (70%) 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden brown. Drain onions.
Meanwhile, cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package. Cook bacon in 10-inch skillet over low heat, turning occasionally, until crisp; drain on paper towels. Chop bacon into small pieces.
Heat whipping cream to boiling in 2-quart saucepan. Mix in 1 cup of the cheese and the onions. Pour over fettuccine; toss to coat. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese; sprinkle with bacon.
