This simple but tasty pasta dish is great for a weekday meal, especially since all the ingredients can be purchased quite a long time in advance. Thanks to CampariGirl to remind me to make this again.
The only important thing to remember here is to use good ham, preferably the kind that only has pork and salt as its ingredients. A good ham really makes this shine.
150-200 grams (.33 – .44 lb) penne pasta
100-150 grams (5 oz) ham, in cubes
150 grams (1 cup) frozen peas
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground white pepper
60 ml (1/4 cup) fresh cream
freshly grated parmigiano reggiano
Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and salt and cook al dente according in the time indicated on the package.
