I'm always looking for dinners that I can put together quickly. I re-created a favorite pasta dish from an Italian restaurant by using grocery store convenience products. Add crusty bread and a salad for a complete meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated fettuccine or refrigerated linguine
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 1 jar (15 ounces) Alfredo sauce
  • 1/3 pound thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped

Directions

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Add spinach. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook just until spinach is wilted.
Stir in Alfredo sauce and prosciutto; cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Drain pasta; add to sauce and toss to coat. Yield: 4 servings.

"Excellent! Very good. I absolutely would make again and plan to. Prosciutto is a little expensive, but other meats could easily be substituted."
