This is recipe from Zagorje region in Croatia. I liked this meal when I was a kid and I like it still today. This meal is very suitable for light dinner or lunch. It is better if you use smoked ham.

Excellent!! had this for supper last night, and am enjoying the last of it for lunch today, rich and creamy and full of flavour, but very simple to prepare! Not a runny sauce, but deliciously moist. I unfortunately didn't have a flat pasta to use, I'll make sure that I do next time, so I used small shells, which still seemed to work well. its not often that i make pasta without adding cheese, but believe me, this doesn't need it! Delicious, made for PAC FAll 2008, thanks, Nitko!
