Method

1. Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water until al dente, approximately 10 minutes. Drain the pasta into a colander and leave to drain to remove the majority of the water.

2. Preheat the grill to a high heat. Lay out a clean tea towel, tip out the pasta onto it and roll it in the tea towel to remove all excess moisture.

3. Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the oregano and add salt and pepper. Place the pasta in the bowl with the eggs and toss to thoroughly coat the pasta. This is actually easiest to do with your hands.

4. When the oil in the frying pan is really hot, add the pasta (this quantity makes 2) and spread out evenly across the surface of the pan. Fry for 4 minutes, or until the base is really golden and crunchy.

5. Scatter the goats' cheese in even lumps over the top and place under the grill for 4-5 minutes.

6. Tear the Parma ham over the top into ribbons, drizzle with a little olive oil. And the chilli flakes, if using.
