PENNE PASTA WITH PROSCIUTTO SAUCE

I first introduced this recipe on Live With Regis and Kathie Lee. Kathie Lee raved that it was the best dish she had ever tasted.


            8 ounces penne
            2 tablespoons Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
            1 tablespoon unsalted butter
            4 ounces prosciutto, cut into strips
inch wide*
            1 small onion, diced.
            6 plum tomatoes, diced
            1 cup heavy cream
           
cup fresh or frozen peas
            Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
           
cup grated Parmesan cheese

Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as a main course. 

Cook the pasta as usual. 

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil and butter over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and onion and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Stir in the tomatoes. Add the cream, peas, and pepper and simmer until the mixture is slightly thickened. Add the Parmesan cheese and mix thoroughly. Toss with the pasta and serve.

*Use the authentic Prosciutto Di Parma and Parmegiano Reggiano, these are the
benchmarks, the taste is extraordinary!
