Pasta, ham and cheese are Italian while French are the sauce and cooking method. The secret is obviously in the ingredients and production methods; an element common to all Cipriani pasta references.

Egg Pasta Pappardelle with Spinach with Butter and Cheese
The simplest - and some say the best - way to prepare egg pasta. It should go without saying that the pasta, butter, and cheese must all be nothing less than perfect.
SERVES 6 AS A FIRST COURSE OR 4 AS A MAIN COURSE
- 3/4 pound Egg Pasta Pappardelle with Spinach (330g)
- 3/4 cup (6 ounces) unsalted butter softened (170g)
- 6 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese (45g), plus extra to pass at the table
- freshly ground pepper (optional)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the boiling water, add the pasta and cook for 2 minutes or until al dente. Drain the pasta. Put the softened butter and the grated cheese into the hot pot, return the pasta to the pot, and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon or a fork for 2 or 3 minutes, until everything is creamy and well combined. Season with a little salt and a grind or 2 of pepper if you wish.
Put the pasta in a heated serving dish. Serve immediately, passing around a small bowl of grated Parmesan cheese.
