    Tagliatelle with Fromage Frais and Parma Ham

    Fromage frais makes an ideal sauce for any pasta, but it is important that it is added to the hot pasta at the last minute and not overheated. For an even quicker dish, fresh pasta could be used instead of dried. Bacon could be used in place of the Parma ham.
