SERVES 4


2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon thyme

2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
3 cups chicken or shrimp stock

Saute the onion in the olive oil for approximately four minutes. Add the garlic and stir. Add thyme, cayenne and black peppers, and basil and cook at low heat for five more minutes. Add everything else except for the pasta, shrimp, and cheese, and cook over lowish heat for an hour.
