fettuccine with prosciutto and peas in a cream sauce

Deliciousness in a bowl. All the food groups are present, too! including fat! But I care not. This dish is super easy and all around awesome. I was surprised as the flavours are definitely something I’d expect to find in a restaurant meal! Try it!

Fettuccine with prosciutto and peas in a cream sauce
1 lb fettucine
1 tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup onions, diced
1 tbsp minced garlic
3 ounces prosciutto, cut into 1/4-inch strips
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I actually used 10% and it was fine.)
1 1/2 cups frozen sweet peas
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
3/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

Boil water and cook pasta according to directions.

While the pasta cooks, heat the oil in a skillet and cook onions until translucent (about 3 minutes). Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Throw in the prosciutto and saute for 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with the wine and cook until nearly evaporated. Add the peas, cream, salt and pepper. Cook until the cream reduces by half, 5 minutes or so.

Drain the pasta and return to the pot. Pour the sauce over and toss carefully. Add the parmesan and parsley, toss again and serve with more freshly cracked pepper.
