In honor of my youngest son’s birthday, I would like to share his favorite dish with you : Coquillettes crème fraîche ham.
As you can see, we are a multilingual family, so some things get transformed along the way…not all French, not all English…
This is a very simple, warm, luscious dish for children, that even adults enjoy, trust me! There are never any leftovers!
Cook your coquillettes al dente.
Once you have drained them, set them aside. In that same saucepan, put it back on the burner and dollop in a good portion of crème fraiche and several slices of jambon blanc , cut in sqaures. When the ham pieces have slightly browned, add in the pasta.
Grate some parmesan cheese.
Once the crème has thickened and has softened the pasta slightly, take it off the heat and add in a good serving of parmesan and fresh ground pepper.
Serve piping hot to a birthday boy’s delight!
