"While I do love a good ham sandwich, sometimes the cook needs to come up with something different. The following recipe is based on an idea from Elizabeth David who claims it is a Corsican way to enjoy ham. With a few details adjusted it could just as well be a Spanish dish. It does need a really good homemade tomato sauce and good-quality ham. This dish is gutsy, incredibly simple and a great post-Christmas favourite for young and older at my place." Stephanie Alexander
