{Penne with Grilled Chicken, Gorgonzola, Asparagus and Caramelized Onions}

I am such a pasta lover, if I see a good recipe I just have to try it. I found this on Pinterest and it was so yummy. The caramelized onions and gorgonzola added so much great flavor. I will be making this through out the summer for sure.

2 cups penne pasta, uncooked
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup thin onion sliced, separated into rings
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups chopped cherry tomatoes
2 cups cut up chicken breasts
1 1/3 cups chicken broth
1 bunch asparagus cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 cup whipping cream
4 tsp. minced fresh garlic
1 4oz package crumbled gorgonzola cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, heat oil in small skillet on medium heat. Add onions and sugar; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until onions are tender. Remove from heat.
Drain pasta; place in large skillet. Add tomatoes; cook on medium heat 1 min., stirring occasionally. Add chicken, broth, asparagus, cream and garlic; mix well. Cook 5 min. or until sauce is slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Add onions, cheese and basil; cook 2 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
