Gratin of Linguine


3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup proscuitto, cut into julienne strips 
1 box of quinoa linguini pasta or regular linguini 
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese plus extra to pass around at the table 
4 cups béchamel sauce


1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet. Add proscuitto and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook linguini per instructions, leaving it slightly al dente. Drain well in a colander and place in a large ovenproof casserole, spreading the pasta evenly in the dish. 

3. Sprinkle 1/2 the proscuitto over the pasta and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Toss well. Spoon béchamel sauce over top and then place 2 tablespoons butter, broken into pieces, over the pasta. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese on top of pasta.

4. Place on the top rack in the oven and set on broil. Broil as close as possible to the heat source for about 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
