Penne with prosciutto cotto und green peas

Main dishes


Ingredients for 4 portions: 300 g of pasta penne, 1 slice 2 mm thick of prosciutto cotto (baked ham), 100 g of green peas, 200 g cream or creme fraiche cheese, salt to taste, black pepper at discretion, some grated Parmesan cheese.

Steam or boil the green peas. Boil the salt water to cook the pasta. Cut the ham into small cubes.

While the pasta cooks put the cream on the fire and let it condence over medium heat, stirring to prevent the formation of a skin.

Drain the pasta and put it in a pan with the cream, add the ham and the green peas and sauté everything until the cream reaches the desired consistency (the more you cook, the more it gets thick). Serve and sprinkle with some black pepper and grated Parmesan cheese.
