You may have noticed I don't post as many pasta recipes as I used to. It's because our little boy really isn't a big fan. (I know, weird kid, huh?) He'll eat plain pasta with ketchup, or pasta with pesto, and he certainly doesn't turn down a good Bolognese, but for the creamier sauces that I love... not so much. So we don't make them as much right now - but still, sometimes... pasta remains my favorite comfort food, and I hope Titus will grow to like it eventually.
This pasta is just the thing for me. It's creamy but with lots of tang, and salty from the Coppa di Parma which I like even better than prosciutto - much more flavorful.
Spaghetti with Coppa di Parma & Orange
230 g spaghetti
1 tbsp butter
80 g Coppa di Parma, torn into pieces
1 orange - finely grated zest and juice
100 ml cream (full-fat)
100 ml parmesan, grated
black pepper, to taste
Cook the spaghetti in plenty of salted water. When it has a few minutes left, melt the butter in a large pan and fry the Coppa for a minute or so. Add the orange zest and juice, and the cream. When the pasta is cooked, add that to the pan as well, and some of the pasta water if you want it to be saucier. Stir in the parmesan, and season with black pepper.
