Method

Boil the pasta until just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well, cool in ice-cold water, and drain well again. Place the pasta in a bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Divide the pasta among 4 chilled plates. Artfully disperse the proscuitto, basil, tomatoes and cheese on and around the pasta. Drizzle each salad with vinegar, sprinkle with a few chili flakes, if using, and serve.
Note: A vegetable peeler can be used to create “shaved” pieces of Parmesan.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the salad with slices of your favourite in-store bakery bread. The possibilities include filone, ciabatta, focaccia and piccolo red pepper.

Instead of penne, try another type of bite-sized pasta in this recipe, such as bow-tie or rotini. Instead of proscuitto, try another type of thinly sliced cured ham, such as serrano. Instead of Parmesan, try nuggets of a creamy cheese in the salad, such as goat or Gorgonzola.
