My kids call this “Peas and Prosciutto”. It is a really easy and very delicious meal that everyone likes. If you have everything on hand it is a no brainer. You can use bow tie pasta if you don’t have gnocchi.
First you put a package of prosciutto into the pan and I use scissors to cut it up. Then I pour in 2 cups of cream (heavy or regular) and about 1 cup of fresh or frozen peas. I had fresh today.
I simmered mine for quite a while since my husband came home late so I turned off the heat and just let it sit there and wait. This actually made it better because the flavor of the prosciutto infused into the cream during that time.
I normally purchase a package of gnocchi but this time I had some left in the freezer from my Croatian Pasticada. I layered the sauce over the gnocchi, topped with fresh parmesan and garnished with italian parsley. Yum! This is obviously a rich dish with all the cream and cheese but amazing comfort food!
