Adapted from Die frische Küche by Andrea Karrer

Ingredients:

1 onion, diced
100 g smoked pork belly, diced
3 Tbsp butter
4 pointy bell peppers, deseeded and sliced
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
250 g dried pasta
1 tsp paprika (sweet)
1 tsp paprika (hot)
freshly ground parmesan or gruyère

Method:

Melt the butter in a skillet and fry the pork belly until nicely browned. Remove from the pan and set aside. Fry the onion and peppers in the remaining butter and pork drippings on low heat for about 8 minutes. Add the cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and toss with the peppers. Sprinkle on the paprikas and mix well. Serve with some grated cheese on top.
