Wagon-Wheel Pasta, Limas & Goat Cheese

1/2 pound wagon-wheel (or any short) pasta
1 1/2 cups fresh lima beans (can also use frozen)
1 TBS olive oil
1 cup onion, sliced thinly
2 TBS sour cream
1 TBS finely chopped fresh thyme (optional)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
4 ounces creamy goat cheese
Directions: 1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then add the pasta.
2. After 5 minutes, add the lima beans.
3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until browned, about 7 minutes.
4. When the pasta is ready, drain it with the beans (reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid), then return the pasta and beans to the pot along with the onion, sour cream, thyme, salt, pepper, goat cheese, and the reserved water. Toss together and serve. (makes 4 servings)
