ingredients

serves 4
8 ripe tomatoes
350 g (12 oz) pasta shells
225 g (8 oz) thickly sliced ham
10 basil leaves
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tomato puree
salt and pepper, to taste
25 g (1 oz) butter
sprig basil, to garnish

method

1. Skin tomatoes by immersing them in a pan of boiling water.

2. Chop tomatoes, cut ham into strips and shred basil.

3. Cook pasta in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water for 10 - 12 mins until just tender.

4. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add tomatoes and tomato puree and saute for 4 - 5 mins. Add seasoning.

5. Drain pasta, toss in butter and seasoning. Stir in ham and basil.

6. Serve pasta topped with tomato sauce and garnished with basil sprig.

Fresh basil develops a bitter taste if overcooked so always add to a dish just before serving.
