....and you can too!
Quick and easy triple "P" (prosciutto, pea and parmesan) pasta
1 packet of fettuccine or other pasta (store bought)
1-2 cups of frozen peas
3tbs olive oil
1/2 cup chicken stock
6-8 thin slices of prosciutto
2-3 cloves garlic
1 bird's eye chili
herbs from the garden (I used flat leaf parsley, basil and oregano)
a generous handful of good quality parmesan to serve
Boil pasta until al dente. Drain.
While pasta is draining (can you tell I'm a fan of minimal washing up?), heat olive oil in pot.
Because you're awesome at multitasking (I knew it!), defrost peas in microwave.
Add crushed garlic and chili to pot, followed by prosciutto.
After a couple of minutes, add the peas and stock to the mix. Allow to cook for a few minutes before throwing in a couple of generous handfuls of fresh herbs.
The mixture may appear to be a little runny at this point, but don't you worry - it'll coat the pasta just perfectly!
Return drained pasta to pot and stir sauce through well.
Serve immediately and top with parmesan and cracked black pepper.
Best enjoyed with a glass of vino...or two!
