Caramelized Onions and other such goodness

So...ever wonder what to do with all those leftover onions from the last co-op or shopping trip rolling around pathetically in your veggie drawer? I have the answer!! Peel the onions and slice them. Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet and saute the onions, stirring often, until they are soft and brown. This causes the natural sugars in the onion to come out and they are so sweet and tasty! Put them on homemade pizza, burgers (veggie or otherwise), over pasta, or just eat them plain! I make a pig of myself every time I make these.

You can also add sliced zucchini, bell peppers, whole cherry tomatoes, you name it. Wait until the onions have a bit of a head start, then add the other veggies and cook to desired softness. So yummy!
