Saturday Lunch: Quick Pasta Sauce

We had some egg yolks in the fridge that really needed to be used, so I made this pasta:

Brown some 5mm dice smoked ham in butter. Add minced shallot. Add the garlic clove you boiled with the pasta and mash it. Add the pasta (fusilli). Add some egg yolks scrambled with milk, a grind of black pepper, and a sprinkle of cayenne. Stir in some chopped tarragon. Eat and smile.

The ham/tarragon combination was a random idea based on the contents of the fridge. It's quite nice.
