Farfalle with cheddar cream, green apple and red onion

This is a pasta dish we like to make when we're too lazy to cook anything else. The combination between the cheddar cream (a classic pasta topping), the red onion and the sour green apple pieces is something we've created together and we're quite proud of. It may sound a bit strange, but it goes together very, very well. Try it once and you'll want more :)
P.S: Laziness is also the reason the final pic is with the whole pot of pasta.. because we ate right from it :).

Last year: German mustard cream pork chops with Apple and leeks winter salad

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1/2 green apple
  • 250-300 g pasta
  • 100 ml liquid cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 4 aged cheddar slices (80 g)
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons basil pesto
Boil the pasta according to package instructions. Chop up the apple and red onion halves.

Fry the onion slowly in the olive oil. When it's translucent add the cream and season with salt and pepper.

When the cream is heated through, add the apple and the cheddar, torn to pieces to speed up the melting.

Mix a little until everything comes together in a thick cream. When the pasta is boiled, drain almost all the water from it (except 2-3 tablespoons) and pour the sauce on top of it:

Mix well to coat everything and dig in! :)
