Ingredients

  • Spaghetti pasta
  • Very thinly sliced Italian dry cured ham (e.g. Prosciutto)
  • Sliced courgette Caciocavallo (Delicious Sicilian hard cheese that literally translates to ‘cheese on horseback’ but is made from cows milk) or you could use Parmesan as a replacement
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Sicilian Olive Oil

Method

  • Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water until ‘al dente’ In a separate pan cook the sliced courgettes in plenty of Sicilian Olive Oil
  • Once the spaghetti is cooked, add to the pan adding in the very thinly sliced ham. Toss together with plenty more olive oil, and grate over lots of the local ‘Caciocavallo’ cheese (you could also use Parmesan which is a similar hard cheese).
  • Add plenty of black pepper and a little salt if required and serve.
  • As alien as it seems to us in the UK, Sicilians enjoy pasta as their first course, usually followed by meats with vegetables or salad.
  • So why not surprise your friends and serve this as a starter, Sicilian style!
