To start off the week, I thought I'd share a favorite recipe that is delicious and easy.  I found it on the Food Network website in 2007 and it's from the lovely Giada De Laurentiis.  We made it again a couple days ago:

1 lb. spaghetti
4 Tbsp. Meyer lemon olive oil (look online)**
2 large red onions, cut into 1/4-in. thick rings
2 tsp. chopped fresh marjoram
8 oz. feta cheese, cubed
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

** this really makes the dish so don't skimp and use regular olive oil :)

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the spaghetti and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.  Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onions and saute until tender and beginning to brown, about 15 minutes adding salt and pepper, to taste.  Stir in the marjoram, and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Add the cooked pasta and the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and toss with enough reserved cooking liquid, 1/4 cup at a time, to moisten.  Toss with the feta cheese.  Season the pasta with salt and pepper, to taste.  Transfer to bowls and serve.
