2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, de-seeded, cut into 1/2-inch slices

1 bunch chives, thinly sliced


Cook the pasta until al dente. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and fry the onions until translucent. Add the cucumber and fry for another 4-5 minutes. Stir in the ricotta, paprika and 3-4 Tbsp (or to taste) of the pasta cooking water. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Serve with a sprinkle of chives on top.
