Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Heat the olive oil in a pan over a low heat. Add the red onions, then cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the onions catching on the bottom of the pan.

Add the garlic after 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, put a large pan of salted water on to boil. Add the spaghetti and cook for 9-10 minutes, until al dente.

Drain, reserving 2-3 tbsp of the cooking water and return the pasta to the pan and cover.

Add the chillies, sugar and vinegar to the onions and bubble for 1 minute.

Put the courgette spaghetti on top of the onions, cover and remove from the heat.

Set aside for a few minutes to allow the courgette to steam until wilted.

Add the onions and courgette spaghetti mixture to the pasta, with the reserved cooking water, half of the goat’s cheese and seasoning.

Toss together.

Serve the pasta in bowls, scattered with the remaining goat’s cheese and some chopped cherry tomatoes.
