DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a frypan, and saute the onion and garlic over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the diced ham and saute a further 2 minutes or so.
  • Add the tomato paste, and cook stirring for 2 minutes, then pour in the wine or stock.
  • If I'm using wine, I like to reduce it a little.
  • Now add the crushed tomatoes, peas and freshly ground black pepper and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • No longer though or the peas lose their fresh green colour.
  • Add the cream and reheat gently, then stir through the chopped basil before serving.
  • Offer Parmesan cheese at the table.
