Bonnefons cucumber pappardelle

Last sunday, at the #undergroundboerenmarkt, I bought Bonnefons spice mixture (link in Dutch) from Lizet Kruyff. On her blog (link in Dutch) she gives a recipe how to use this spice mixture. I used it as a starting point to create my own recipe. It probably isn’t historically correct but it’s really nice anyway.

Ingredients
2 cucumbers
3 small red onions
125g pappardelle
100g raw, smoked ham
2 teaspoons Bonnefons spice mixture

Bring 3 liters of water to the boil.
Dice the cucumbers and ham and slice the red onions.
Cook the pappardelle according to the instructions on the package.
Bake the ham in a frying pan with little oil for 3 minutes. Remove the ham from the pan and gently fry the onions for 5 minutes. Then add the cucumber and Bonnefons spice mixture, stir and fry for another 5 minutes. Then add the ham and fry for a few more minutes.
Drain the pappardelle and stir it through the cucumber mixture. Now it is ready to serve.

Notes:
The spice mixture is very spicy. If you like Indian food, use 2 teaspoons as I did in this recipe. If you prefer a milder flavour, add some cream or sour cream to the mixture or use less Bonnefons spice mix.
