Sauté the garlic and onion in a pan over medium-high heat in olive oil.
Add the horse beef and the paprika, mix and sauté over medium heat for one minute.
Add the cream cheese, cream, ground pepper and mix thoroughly. Taste before adding salt. The sauce is finished. Set aside until bigoli is ready
Once the pasta is cooked, add the bigoli to the sauce and mix carefully trying to avoid breaking the pasta. Add a little bit of the pasta water if the sauce is too thick.
