This recipe is one of our kids’ favourites, and I’ve always had for lunch and for dinner. Pasta with pork mince it’s not a recipe from Transylvania, but I used some flavours and Hungarian ingredients like sweet paprika, paprika cream, and double cream because they will give the dish a great taste.

It’s better to say an Italian recipe adapted to our tastes. The cooking time is about one hour and medium difficulty. Let’s begin!

Ingredients

Pasta With Pork Mince-Ingredients

I will use in this recipe half a kilogram of pork mince of 18% fat but you can also use a mixture of pork and beef if you want, and for extra flavour and texture I will put 100 g of slightly smoked pancetta.

And because this recipe is impossible without some vegetables, we will need a big onion, two bell peppers, I chose one yellow and one red, and half a kilo of mushrooms.

We will give the preparation a fine and creamy texture with the help of 300 ml double cream, which we will add towards the end.

You can also use any type of pasta, from spaghetti to farfalle, I decided to boil some penne that I will serve with this great dish.

Preparing the Ingredients

Preparing the ingredients does not require too much time because all you have to do is clean and chop the onion first.
