Spaghetti with Saffron

For this simple dish you will need dried spaghetti, a few strands of saffron, 150 gram cooked quality ham, 200 ml panna da cucina, 2 egg yolks and 50 grams freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Cook the pasta.

In the meantime put the saffron in a few tablespoons of water and bring to a boil. As soon as it boils turn off the heat and leave to stand for a while. Add strips of ham. Stir in the panna da cucina and Parmesan. Add salt and pepper and heat gently while stirring. Remove from heat and add egg yolks. Mix well.

Add the sauce to the drained pasta and toss.

Serve with extra grated Parmesan.
