2 large eggs
1 pound bow tie pasta
3-4 good sized onions
Canola oil

Directions:
Directions:
Dice onions and saute' in a pan with canola oil. Use a low flame and keep mixing until the onions are golden in color and soft. After the onions have finished cooking you can chop them further if needed and then set aside. Take the cup of kasha and put into a 2 qt. pot. Use low heat. Crack the two large eggs into the kasha and mix it until the egg is all mixed in and the kasha is moist. Keep stiring until the kasha gets dried out like it was originally and then pour boiling water into the kasha - just enough to cover all the kasha plus a little bit more. Cover the pot and let the kasha cook on a low flame until it absorbs all the water and is soft. At this time you will need to prepare the bow tie pasta. Once the bow tie pasta is ready - drain and then add to the pot where you are cooking your kasha. Add your onions, a little oil to the kasha and mix. Add salt and pepper to taste and then serve.
