I made this for dinner, I was in a rush again so I cheated….
Melt some butter
fry up some very finely chopped onion
add some finely chopped smoked ham and fry up a bit
add pasta and stir
add water… almost cover all
here is the cheating part… I must admit that it’s not as good as home-made but I was in a rush
Here is the cooked pasta after 4 minutes
it still had water in but it didn’t matter as I didn’t want the result to be too thick.
I added some of that besamel sauce, probably about 40% of it
Stir and close the pan. Leave it for 2 minutes…
open: gosh! the steam!
ready to serve. I grated some cheese and had some of that on top
As usual I forgot to add salt but it was ok.
If I’d had some ready made pasta, I would have just made the besamel sauce after I added the ham, I would have stirred in some flour, added some milk, mixed it and closed the pan for a couple and minutes…
I should try that next time and see if it works without having to stir constantly
