Here comes another one of these no-fuss pasta dishes I just love. It's done in no time. The sauce can be prepared while your pasta is cooking. I like the addition of goat's cheese and green olives to this simple ham and cream sauce - gives it a salty twist. With the addition of different herbs and a bit of peperoncino, the flavour becomes more interesting.

Pour the pasta into salted boiliing water and cook al dente. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic, but take it out again before it gets brown. Now, add the ham streaks and fry. Add the chili und the chopped herbs. As soon as the chili begins to smell, add cream and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, then, reduce the heat and add the goat's cheese. Stir until it's melted. Add the olives and season your sauce according to taste. Set your sauce aside. When your pasta is ready, drain it and add to the sauce. Serve with some grated parmesan or pecorino cheese.
