  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 130g tagliatelle
  • 100g lean, thin sliced ham
  • 100m dry white wine
  • 200ml single cream
  • Grated Parmesan cheese to serve

  1. Cook the frozen peas, strain and leave to one side.
  2. Put on a pan of water to boil for the tagliatelle.
  3. cook gently over a low heat for about 8 minutes until it is soft and just beginning to brown.
  4. Meanwhile, add the tagliatelle to the boiling water and cook according to the instructions on the packet, usually no more than 5 minutes.
  5. Cut the ham into small pieces and add to the onion along with a good sprinkling of black pepper and the peas.
  6. Turn the heat up slightly, cook for a few minutes, stirring continuously and then add the white wine.
  7. When the wine has reduced slightly turn the heat back down and add the cream, stir thoroughly and heat through without boiling.
