Nutrition facts

Cube ham and let it flavour in the butter in a little saucepan for few time, stirring with a wooden spoon; don't let your butter colour! At this point pour in cream and grated Parmesan, stirring continuously. Keep on cooking until your sauce is creamy. Cooking needs few minutes. Switch off the gas, add Worcester sauce, season to taste with salt and stir. If you want, you can also add a pinch of black pepper.
Boil pasta, drain it very well and pour immediately into a large bowl; add the sauce and egg yolks and stir with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are well mixed. Serve immediately.
