Method

  1. Cook the tagliatelle in a large pan of boiling, salted water according to pack instructions. Four mins before the end of the cooking time, add the runner beans.

  2. Meanwhile, cut each slice of prosciutto into 5-6 pieces. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the ham, then fry quickly until crisp. Drain the pasta and return to the pan with the crème fraîche, prosciutto, pan juices and plenty of black pepper, tossing everything together until the pasta is well coated.

This was delightfully simple to make. I recommend reserving a small amount of the cooking water to add to the creme fraiche, just to make it a little bit silkier (as you would a carbonara). I also agree with other users' comments re: it needing a little something extra - I will use lemon next time. Really nice though, went down well with my friends.

Made this with double the ingredients for 4 people but left the beans at 200g. It was lovely, my fussy teenage daughter loved it so this is another meal to my growing list since finding this site.

White wine definitely needed. Add it after frying the prosciutto ham, remove from pan and add the white wine to reduce, then add the creme fraiche. I also added some finely chopped mushrooms.... they helped to give the sauce a bit more body and also a bit of garlic.... good for you after all!

This is a really good recipe. Tastes very nice and super easy. I was a bit dubious about the small number of ingredients and thought about adding garlic, chilli or some herbs. But in the end I stuck to the recipe and honestly I don't think it needed anything else. Also I substituted mascarpone cheese for creme fraiche as that's what I had in the fridge.

Love this recipe! It's quick, easy, healthy and tasty - the perfect weeknight meal. I used fine green beans instead of runner beans and only 100g as 200g seems a bit much for just two people.

We made it with green beans instead of runner beans and added a little lemon juice. Delicious!

This is just the best, and so quick and easy! I've used it as a starter, and also as a main course - we can't stop eating it!

Really tasty & very quick. Didn't have runner beans or prosciutto, so used peas and bacon instead, with a generous sprinkling of parmesan on top of course :)
