Pasta with Onion, Bacon, and Goat Cheese

This is one of the many great pasta recipes I've tried from Everyday Foods magazine. It is one of those recipes that you can almost get done in the time it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta. There are basically 6 ingredients: pasta, bacon, red onions, garlic, fresh thyme and goat cheese. They make a great combination, and the goat cheese and some pasta water create a quick and creamy sauce.

The recipe calls for cooking the onion for up to 20 minutes (after the bacon), but I sometimes increase the heat a little, and cook less. It helps if the onions are sliced thin. I find it best to start the bacon cooking, then get the water boiling.
