Pasta in a cheese sauce with carrots and sunflower seeds

A pasta sauce based on onions, garlic, cream, parmesan and another kind of cheese can never go wrong! Also it is nice to add some vegetables and nuts or seeds. In this case, I have chosen carrots and sunflower seeds.

Serves 5

500 g tagliatelle
3 red onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1.5 dl sunflower seeds
5 carrots, diced
5 dl cream
200 g brie cheese, diced
75 g parmesan cheese, grated
1.5 tsp herb salt
2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
Oil for frying
Freshly ground black pepper for serving

Fry the sunflower seeds until they become golden brown. Put them aside. Fry the onions and carrots for about 5 minutes and include the garlic the last minute. Add cream and spices and let simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the pasta according to instructions on the package. Take off the sauce from the heat and stir in the cheese until melted. Mix the pasta with the sauce and serve with freshly ground black pepper.
