It takes only a few powerful ingredients like these to pull off amazingly full flavor. This rich, sophisticated pasta is guaranteed to keep the winter doldrums at bay.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (3 oz)
  • 1 lb Our Own Fresh "Villa Pasta" Penne Pasta
  • 2 oz thinly sliced parma prosciutto, coarsely chopped

Directions

Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 375°F.
 
Bring cream, 1 1/2 cups cheese, 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 3/4 teaspoon salt just to a boil in a small heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
 
Cook pasta in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water, until al dente, then drain in a colander. Return pasta to pot, then stir in parmesan cream and prosciutto, tossing to coat. Transfer mixture to a 2-quart shallow flameproof gratin or baking dish (about 11 by 8 by 2 inches; not glass) and bake 15 minutes.
 
Stir pasta well to coat evenly with sauce, then sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
 
Turn on broiler and broil pasta 4 to 5 inches from heat until top is lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes
