About 1/3 Red Onion

Pappardelle alla Fiesolana (Serves 6)


1 tbsp Butter

1 tbsp Flour

8.5 oz Whole Milk

3 tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 package Prociutto Cubed or Sliced into Strips

Optional: Garlic, chopped finely

1 large handful Parsely, finely chopped


Boil the pasta water in advance of the preparation of the pasta course so won’t take long to get to boiling. Salt the water when it boils. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining the butter and flour in a medium saucepan over low heat until a creamy paste forms

Add the milk and stir continuously to dissolve the paste. Now add the cheese, salt and pepper and continue stirring over medium-low heat until you have a béchamel on the liquidy side

Remove from the heat but cover to keep the sauce warm. In a separate pan, cook the prosciutto in olive oil with optional chopped garlic until the fats dissolve and the meat is just starting to turn crisp. Bring the warmed water to boiling and add the pappardelle. Cook for 3 minutes only.

Add the béchamel to the pan with prosciutto and combine. Transfer the cooked pappardelle to the sauce pan and toss well. Serve with a generous portion of the fresh parsley and (optional) a dusting of ground black pepper.
