Yields6 Servings

White Beans with Rotini and Golden Onions

 3 tbsp olive oil
 2 medium onions, halved lengthwise and cut into thin strips
 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
 2 large red bell peppers, cut lengthwise into ⅛" wide strips
 2 tsp finely chopped fresh jalapeño chile
 1 tsp salt
 ¼ tsp black pepper
 ¾ cup water
 1 lb rotini
 16 oz can white beans, drained and rinsed
 2 oz finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
 ½ cup finely chopped fresh, flat-leaf parsley

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then saute onions, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and saute, stirring, 1 minute, then transfer onions to a bowl.
Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet and saute bell peppers, chile, salt, and pepper, stirring occasionally, until bell peppers are tender, about 8 minutes. Add onions and water and bring to a boil, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet, then remove from heat.
While peppers are sauteing, cook pasta in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling, salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Reserve 3/4 cup cooking water, then drain pasta well in a colander and return to pot. Add onion mixture, reserved cooking water, beans, half of cheese, and half of parsley and toss well.
Serve sprinkled with remaining cheese and parsley.
