This is a simple sauce, but it is quite delicious. You quite literally stir the sauce ingredients together as the pasta cooks, then stir it through the hot, drained pasta – not a bad way to make a meal!
For 4-6 servings:
1. Put the spaghetti on to cook in plenty of boiling water with 1 teaspoon of salt. While the pasta cooks, combine eggs, cream and grated Parmesan cheese. Cut the ham into narrow (5mm to 10mm) ribbons.
2. When the pasta is cooked, drain it, then return to the cooking pot and add the cubed butter. As soon as the butter has melted, add the egg mixture and stir to thoroughly combine.
3. The heat of the pasta and pot should thicken the sauce to a thick, creamy consistency. If the sauce is not thickening, return the pot to a very low heat (the switched-off element will usually do) for a minute of two, stirring frequently. Add the ham strips and a generous grind of black pepper, then stir again and leave to stand for one minute.
4. Serve immediately with extra grated Parmesan cheese.
It’s easy and free; everyone’s invited and, best of all, there are lots of people, just like you, sharing advice and support.
