AT A GLANCE
If there were such a thing as breakfast pasta, this would be it. That said, we could eat this at any time of day. We've used mafalda, a ribbon-like pasta with curly edges, but fettuccine also works nicely.
|01||Preheat oven to 180C. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until not quite al dente (7-8 minutes). Drain and return to pan with 2 tbsp pasta cooking water. Stir in cream,mascarpone and milk to combine, then stir in provolone, parmesan and ham, and season generously to taste. Divide among four 500ml shallow ramekins or baking dishes, scatter with extra provolone and parmesan, and bake until bubbling and golden brown (20-25 minutes).|
|02||Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and fry one egg to your liking (2-3 minutes for soft yolks). Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining eggs.|
|03||To serve, top each dish with a spoonful of ricotta and a fried egg, and scatter with herbs.|
