Weekday dinner: pasta with yogurt, onions, and carrots

My inspiration for this pasta was Amanda Hesser's pasta with yogurt and caramelized onions.  She calls for sheep's milk yogurt and cheese, neither of which I had, but I did have Greek yogurt, carrots, and eggs.

So that's what went into this dish: a chopped and caramelized red onion, steamed carrots, some pasta, two eggs and some Greek yogurt (beaten together, forming a thick sauce that cooked quickly and became creamy once stirred into the pasta and vegetables).  Sea salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper to finish.
