120 g of mozzarella
80 g of cooked ham in a single slice
40 g of grated Parmesan cheese
40 g of butter
A plate of tagliatelle with cooked ham and mozzarella is as quick and easy as satisfying; to make it you just need three simple and easily available ingredients, fresh tagliatelle, mozzarella fiordilatte and ham cooked in a thick slice cut into cubes or, for those who prefer it, reduced into small tasty confetti. A generous sprinkling of grated Parmesan completes everything and voilà, watering guaranteed.
And if you want a slightly more intense flavour, just replace the fiordilatte with the same amount of buffalo mozzarella.
To make this dish we opted for ready-made egg tagliatelle but if you prepare them at home, following our recipe for egg pasta, the result will be even more pleasing. And if you want to try your hand at new recipes, in the section dedicated to tagliatelle you will be spoiled for choice
To prepare the tagliatelle with cooked ham and mozzarella, boil the fresh tagliatelle in plenty of salted water.
While they are cooking, combine the diced ham and mozzarella, grated parmesan and a pinch of black pepper in a bowl. Drain the noodles and transfer them to the bowl with the sauce.
Spread a few flakes of butter on top and mix with extreme delicacy in order to season the noodles evenly without breaking them. To help you do this, you can swirl the bowl by holding it with both hands. Serve immediately the tagliatelle with cooked ham and mozzarella.
