Baked Carbonara with Ham

225g fettuccine
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 cup sliced black olives
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup thickened cream
3 extra large eggs
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
juice of 1 lemon
2 cups diced lean ham

Preheat the oven to 190ÂșC. Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish by spraying it with a non-stick spray.

Cook the pasta according to package directions, using the shortest cooking time. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and toss with 3/4 cup of the shredded Parmesan, olives, garlic, basil salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a fork. Add the olive oil, cream and feta cheese. Toss into the pasta until well coated. Add the ham; squeeze the lemon juice over and toss all together.

Place the mixture in the prepared baking dish. Cover, using a lid or foil. Bake 30 minutes.

Top with the remaining ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Bake an additional 15 minutes, uncovered. Serve hot.
