RIGATONI AL PROSCIUTTO COTTO

Ingredients

6 ounces boiled ham, diced
4 ounces whole milk mozzarella, diced
1 cup cream
1 pound rigatoni
6 ounces freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano ®
Salt
2 tablespoons butter

How to make the Rigatoni with Boiled Ham:

Put the ham and mozzarella in a saucepan. Add the cream and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Turn on the heat to low and cook for just a few minutes until the cream is slightly reduced. Drop the rigatoni into the boiling salted water and cook until “al dente” (firm to the bite); drain immediately.

Transfer to a butter smeared baking dish, add the sauce and toss thoroughly. Place in an oven preheated to 400 F and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to settle for a few minutes before serving.
