A different way to serve noodles, the proof that here in Bologna we don't only know Bolognese sauce ;)
According to me it's a very refined dish, perfect for a special dinner.
Remember to add salt to boiling water but not in the sauce: this is beacause sauteed ham and Parmesan are salted enought!
You need for 4:
18 ounces egg noodles
1 ounces butter
4 spoons freshly grated Parmesan
3 1/2 ounces Parma ham in 2-3 thick slices
pepper if you like
Cut the ham in sticks of about 1/2 inches then clean the leek and cut it in very thin slices.
Put the ham in a pan with butter, brown it for 2-3 minutes then low fire, add leek and cook for other 4-5 minutes.
Boil noodles just slightly firm, drain them and take aside 3-4 spoons of cooking water: put noodles in the pan with sauce,light fire, add 2 spoons of Parmesan, pepper, cooking water and saute' for one minute.
Put in dishes , add the rest of Parmesan and serve.
You can garnish the plate with a wisp of parsley.
