Jason and I attended a holiday party last night, and I made a couple things to bring along.

1 can black beans, drained + rinsed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
balsamic caramelized onions (procedure follows)
1/2 cup asiago dressing
1/4 cup lemon juice
Prepare pasta as directed and cool. Combine pasta with beans, peppers and caramelized onions. Mix dressing and lemon juice, add to pasta and coat completely.
balsamic caramelized onions
1 or 2 red onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 or 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Chop onions. Warm olive oil in sauté pan, add onions. Sauté for several minutes, until soft and beginning to brown. Add balsamic, continue to sauté on medium heat.
This is delicious and pretty!
Did I already say caramelized onions are amazing?
I also brought my fudgy pumpkin brownies, giving them some festive holiday color.
These are always a hit. I could have brought twice the amount and not had any left. YUM.
