Mascarpone and Parma ham fettuccine recipe

Mascarpone, parma and basil fetuccini

I'm quite happy  and exiting because this weekend I will have the visit and company of my sister and niece. Last year we   had great fun  togheter and this year will be well . I'm sure.
I am testing easy n'quick recipes for when they arrive. I do not want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking and nothing better and easier than that . I had some leftovers in the refrigerator  , like Parma ham and mascarpone cheese, yet  bought for the holidays. I think that would work very well with regular ham , cream cheese or cottage cheese. Easy and fast.
I hope you like  Have a nice week end

Mascarpone is good with everything and makes pasta dishes so creamy.

Oh my Sylvia, how delicious and tempting is your fettuccine.

A massa ficou com um aspecto muito convidativo e é sempre uma opção rápida e de "efeito", já que - com algum cuidado - costuma ficar saborosa, né? A combinação de Mascarpone com presunto de Parma deve resultar muito interessante!

Beijinho e ótima semana.
