Serves 4

500g fresh linguine
25g butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped
150g marinated artichokes, drained & quartered
150g sliced leg ham, cut into strips
300ml cream
2 tsp coarsely grated lemon rind
½ cup (15g) fresh basil, torn
1/3 cup (35g) Parmesan, grated

Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water until al dente. Drain & return to pan. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large frying pan, add the garlic & cook over medium heat for one minute, or until fragrant. Add the artichokes and ham and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the cream and lemon zest, reduce the heat simmer for 5 minutes, gently breaking up the artichokes with a wooden spoon. Pour the sauce over the pasta, then add the basil and Parmesan and toss well until the pasta is evenly coated. Divide among four serving plates and serve immediately.

Nice simple pasta dish for post basketball meal. I used ham hock with Waitrose which gave the dish extra pork depth!
