oil for frying
2 garlic cloves, gently bashed but kept whole
8 slices Parma ham, roughly torn
300g cherry tomatoes, quartered
125g mozzarella, chopped
basil leaves to decorate
Cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and cook the garlic and Parma ham gently for 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until they soften and release their juices.
Drain the pasta, keeping a little of the water back and mix with the tomatoes, removing the garlic. Scatter with the mozzarella and basil.
