Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serves:4-6 people

Cuisine: Main

Skill Level: Easy

 

INGREDIENTS

  • Kosher salt
  • 350g penne pasta
  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 large eggs, plus 1 egg white
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 90g sharp cheddar cheese, grated (1 scant cup)
  • 90g mozzarella cheese, grated (about 1 cup)
  • 90g fontina cheese, grated (1 scant cup)
  • 90g deli ham, in 1 piece, diced
  • 90g parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)

 

METHOD

  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, add salted water and bring to boil. Add penne pasta, then cook for 8 minutes or until al dente. Once pasta is cooked, add the fresh peas and cook for a further 2 minutes, then strain and return the pasta and peas to the pot. Add butter, then stir into the pasta until it’s melted and coated the contents of the pot.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites, evaporated milk and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Then, add the cheddar, mozzarella, fontina and the egg mixture to the pot with the pasta and peas. Return to medium-low heat and cook, stirring constantly until the cheese is melted and everything has thickened. This should take roughly 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add the ham halfway through cooking, then once done remove from heat and mix in the parmesan. Serve, and enjoy!

Pro tip: Don’t let the mixture boil or the eggs will scramble.
