Delicious when served with parmesan cheese.
120g Gypsy ham,
cut into strips
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp olive oil
250g frozen peas
2 tsp finely grated
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the ham and cook until crisp on the edges. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on paper towel.
2 Add the olive oil to the pan and then the peas, and cook until the peas are bright green.
3 Cook the pasta according to packet instructions.
4 Drain the pasta (reserving 1 cup of the cooking water) and tip the pasta back into the pot.
5 Add the ham, peas, lemon zest and juice. (Loosen with some extra-virgin olive oil or some of the cooking water if necessary.) Season well.
6 Serve immediately, with plenty of grated Parmesan sprinkled over the top.
