In this post, I’ll show you a super quick pasta recipe for Gargenelli alla Panna – a creamy cream sauce with ham. A classic italian recipe for young and old.

When I was on vacation in Italy this summer, I was of course always looking for an original and local pasta dish. I finally found my master in the small town of Ravenna, known for its mosaics. Simple and classic Italian dishes were served in an Italian tavern. Including this recipe for Garganelli alla Panna – a pasta that is very similar to the penne, with a creamy cream sauce and fresh prosciutto cotto. Supposedly simple, but just plain good.

Anyone who has ever eaten a real alla panna sauce knows what I mean when I say that these are not just pasta with cream sauce. The combination of fresh egg, cream, salt and nutmeg combined with the right amount of pasta water and a good feeling for cooking temperatures just melts young and old. Any type of pasta goes well with it, whether spaghetti, penne alla panna or even tortellini alla panna.
