Creamy Prosciutto Pasta Recipe

Creamy Prosciutto Pasta Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

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

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
