Milanese Pasta Sauce Recipe

  • 4 oz mushrooms (sliced)
  • ½ oz butter
  • ½ pint strong, well-flavoured tomato sauce
  • 4 oz lean cooked ham (shredded)
  • 8 oz spaghetti

This sauce is excellent to serve with spaghetti or any type of pasta, especially when served as a main course. In this case, extra ham and mushrooms can be added as in this recipe. Otherwise, it is only necessary to use 2 oz each mushroom and ham to ½ pint tomato sauce.

Milanese is often mistaken as a dialect of Italian, although they are both romantic languages, they are separate dialects. And I found out through Wikipedia that Milanese literally means in the style of Milan.

Method
Sauté mushrooms in the butter for 3-4 minutes, then add the sauce. Simmer for a few minutes, then add the ham. Have ready the spaghetti cooked, well drained and mixed with ½ oz butter. Add the sauce and toss up over heat. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
