Creamy, salty and invitingly savory, this pink sauce made with bits of smoky cooked ham, white wine, ricotta and pureed tomatoes needs just 15 minutes to simme, making it an ideal option for a weeknight supper. Tube-like tortiglioni is the pasta of choice, though penne or rigatoni are great substitutes. In any case, you want to select a pasta shape that can stand up to a full-bodied sauce like this one. Before serving, add the cooked pasta to the sauce and cook it for a few minutes. Top with Parmesan before serving.

Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 50 grams cooked ham
  • 5 ounces white wine
  • 150 grams ricotta cheese
  • milk
  • 150 grams tomato puree
  • salt
  • sugar
  • 400 grams pasta
  • parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the onion and ham and saute for a few minutes.
  2. Add the wine and cook until it evaporates completely.
  3. Add the robiola cheese, dilute it with a few tablespoons of milk, stir well, and then cook for approximately 10 minutes on low heat.
  4. Add the tomato puree and season with a pinch of salt and sugar and cook covered until the sauce thickens, approximately 15 minutes.
  5. Cook the pasta in a pot of salted boiling water until al dente, about 8 minutes.
  6. Add the pasta to the sauce and cook for a few minutes.
  7. Serve sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.

I used whole wheat and gluten free pasta for a healthier meal. I also added a couple tablespoons of extra light olive oil to the water while boiling the pasta to prevent them from sticking. The dish I ended up with was tasty and enjoyable. I will make it again.
