This is a really quick and simple mid week meal, using a ready made tomato and mascarpone sauce, and calorie efficient but tasty parma ham. By using Courgetti instead of spaghetti, you drastically reduce the calories in this creamy Italian dish, but the creamy texture of the tomato and mascarpone sauce will still give you the feeling of having a really hearty meal.Print
Delicious, creamy Italian staple, using courgetti to reduce the calories.
4 slices of Parma ham
½ small pack basil
350g tub of tomato and mascarpone sauce
250g pack courgetti
Roughly tear the ham and basil.
Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and dry-fry the ham until crisp.
Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon.
Add the sauce to the pan and cook for 1-2 mins, then toss in the courgetti.
Cook for 1 min more until warmed through.
Divide between bowls, then top with the ham and basil.
If you are sharing your meal, with someone who can eat more calories than you, they can have the standard spaghetti, so you will just need to cook that up first .
