Penne with a Burgundy Onion Sauce

No special story behind this recipe.  Just put together a little dish with some ingredients I had on hand already!

2 cups of penne
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup of Burgundy wine (or any other type of red wine you have on hand)
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1/2 cup of tomato sauce (homemade or pre-made)
Fresh basil

Boil penne until al dente in salted water.  While the pasta is cooking, saute your diced onion in a pan with olive oil over med high heat.  Once they start to caramelize, add your wine.  (*warning: if you are using a gas stove, you may experience a flare up here, that's ok)  Let your wine cook down and begin to caramelize with your onions.  Once the pasta is al dente, drain and add to your onion/wine mixture.  Add your cream and tomato sauce at this point.  Stir until the ingredients have combined.  Turn your heat down to low and simmer until the penne is cooked to your liking.  To garnish, add chopped basil to the top and serve!
