Super yummy and super tasty. Best combo to have when you're cooking!
Bowtie Pasta with Prosciutto and Peas
12 ounces of pasta (whichever you like, I used Farfalle (bowtie)
1 T butter
1 large shallot finely chopped (sweet yellow onion will work too)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 small package of peas, thawed (about 10 ounces)
8 slices of Prosciutto, cut in half and thinly sliced crosswise
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese, Grated
Kosher Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
1. Boil the pasta, Reserve 1 cup of the pasta to add to the sauce to thin it out
2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium low heat, add the shallot and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the cream, peas, and prosciutto. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Simmer until the peas are heated through, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the Parmesan cheese to the sauce. Add the pasta water to thin to your liking. I used about 1/4 a cup. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over the pasta and sprinkle with additional Parm if desired. Serve immediately.
