Savory Alfredo pasta recipe flavored with Aged Country Ham.


  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces fettuccine
  • Olive oil, for tossing
  • 1 package Country Ham
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 pinches freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

How to Make It

Step 1: Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and salt generously. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente (tender but still slightly firm). Drain and toss with a splash of oil.

Step 2: Meanwhile, slice country ham into strips.

Step 4: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter. When the butter has mostly melted, whisk in the cream and nutmeg, add Country Ham and bring to a simmer, then cook for 4 minutes. Lower the heat to keep warm.

Step 5: Whisk the Parmigiano-Reggiano into the sauce. Add the cooked pasta and toss well. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot in heated bowls.
