  • 60ml (1/4 cup) pouring cream
  • 20g (1/4 cup) finely grated pecorino or parmesan, plus extra to serve
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

METHOD

Step 1

.

Use a fork to whisk the egg, egg yolk, cream and pecorino or parmesan in a small bowl until combined. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the prosciutto and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until golden.

Step 3

Add the sweet potato and chilli, if using. Cook, tossing with tongs, for 3 minutes or until softened but not completely wilted. Remove pan from the heat.

Step 4

Pour egg mixture into the pan and toss quickly to coat noodles. The mixture should coat the noodles evenly and cook to a creamy consistency. Divide among serving bowls and top with parsley and extra pecorino. Season.
