Pasta with red cabbage

Red cabbage in your pasta might be a combination that you will not immediately remember, but it is a delicious dish and the color will spontaneously make you happy!

To prepare

The pasta with red cabbage requires a little more patience than most pasta recipes. This is because you have to stew the red cabbage for the best result. It doesn’t have to be cooked all the way to a pulp. I like a little bit of bite in my red cabbage.

Exactly how long it takes depends a bit on how coarsely or finely you have cut your red cabbage. Grating is also possible. Then it will cook faster. I hold on for about 15 minutes. Then it is softer, but still has that beautiful color.

The red cabbage then has a nice bite. For the cheese sauce I used a spicy pecorino. Pecorino always has a specific taste. If you don’t like that, you can of course also use parmesan cheese or any other cheese you like. There is no right or wrong in this story.

Then finish the pasta with red cabbage with crispy fried bacon cubes and fresh herbs. I used oregano, parsley and thyme here, but basil is always possible.
