AKA a really great way to disguise that you’re eating mostly veggies for dinner…
Sometimes you arrive at a Sunday evening and realize that you’ve eaten like crap the entire weekend–too many pieces of bacon at brunch, maybe a margarita or two (or five?) too many, and perhaps a couple of burgers or cheese plates? (Burgers are my love language, don’t judge.) You feel like crap, you’re sluggish, and you realize that you need to shovel some veggies into your body asap or risk your pants not buttoning Monday morning when you’re headed to the office. No? Just me?
If you’re like me and have ever had “that kind” of a Sunday, this dinner is for you. It’s an extremely delicious yet healthy way to start your week–yet it seems decadent.
This is not your momma’s pasta.
Recently, one of my coworker’s wives sent over a recipe (and bag of ingredients–shout out to Barb!) for a pasta dish made with crispy prosciutto, cream and peas. It looked amazing and I realized that it was something I had to make immediately. This is that recipe, modified slightly due to my own personal inability to leave anything well enough alone. This dish goes from cutting board to pasta bowl in just under 20 minutes. In fact, the hardest part of this dish was making sure that Lyle stopped eating the prosciutto long enough for me to throw it into the pan.
