With this mixture with which we make sheets in Sicily, as those for lasagna, can be prepared busiati, Macaroni, Pappardelle, orecchiette and ravioli. I decided to make small rolls (see how to always retrieve them in video recipe) stuffed with ricotta, but also that of sheep's fine, and ham type Prague.
With this riot of flavors, which for me is an alternative to classic lasagna with meat sauce o ai cannelloni of ricotta and tomato, the dressing must be simple, and then the green light to a tomato sauce and crispy Parmesan crust.

300 grams of fresh semolina pasta or sheets for lasagna
500 grams of ricotta di bufala (or sheep if you prefer)
200 grams of smoked ham

nutmeg, to taste
a whole egg
750 ml of tomato puree
extra virgin olive oil, to taste
a bay leaf
250 grams of shredded PDO Parmigiano Reggiano
Prepare the pasta according to This recipe with the same doses and let the dough rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, wrapped in plastic wrap.
Put the ricotta and the whole egg in a bowl and knead them with a whisk or fork until you get a soft dough. Add salt, papá, nutmeg and grated Parmesan cheese.
After the interval of rest, pull the sheets with the pasta machine: I arrive at number 4, because semolina pasta can not and should not be rolled out as thin as egg pasta. Distribute the cream cheese on puff, then add the ham and roll up the sheets from the short side, creating rolls. Cut each roll in half, so you get 3-4 cm high rosettes (must stand in the Tin).
Prepare the tomato sauce, cooking it simply with a little extra virgin olive oil, salt and, If you like, a bay leaf.
Cover the bottom of the pan with a little tomato sauce, then arrange, Standing, rolls of stuffed pasta. Distribute the dough abundant tomato sauce and then cover it with plenty of grated Parmesan cheese.
