Ham Mushroom and Mascarpone Pasta Melt

Prosciutto (ham) with mushroom and Mascarpone - a perfect topping for some nicely cooked pasta. Yes, this is another of my Marks and Spencer copycat meals.

Now there's no real recipe to this and it's perfect for students, mums or indeed anyone with either no time to cook. Or, if you just simply can't be bothered fussing to cook.

As I was saying, there's no real recipe and even though I'm into cooking as you know - there are times when you just don't have time to cook!

So even though I'm not a great fan of ready made pasta sauces, I have to admit I did use them to make this. I used Tortiglioni pasta, but feel free to use whatever takes your fancy. 'Marks and Spencer' use Rigatoni which is very similar to Tortiglioni.


You will need as much as you fancy of the following:

Pasta cooked in lightly salted water (follow the packet instructions)
ready made pasta sauce - (I only used half standard sized jar from M&S)
ready made cheese sauce (I used four cheese sauce from M&S)
sliced and fried mushrooms (I used 2 chestnut mushrooms)
Mascarpone cheese
Prosciutto (ham)
grated mature cheddar
a little olive oil for drizzling


Preheat your oven to 200C/400F or Gas 6

Get your self a suitably sized oven proof dish, put a tiny bit of olive oil in and spread it round the dish with a piece of kitchen paper.

Put a layer of cooked and drained pasta.  Randomly top with a little tomato pasta sauce.  In the bits you missed out, top with the cheese sauce.

Now add the fried mushroom slices and the prosciutto here and there.  Just put them wherever - be artistic!

Add a few dollops of the Mascarpone, then top the lot with some grated cheddar and drizzle over a tiny bit of olive oil.

Bake in your preheated oven (uncovered) for about 30 to 35 minutes - or until it's nice and hot in the middle and serve with some nice salad.
