This was DELICIOUS. I couldn't skip a review this time because this was too good of a recipe to not gush over! The red pepper flakes gave a nice kick to the savory flavor of the sauce! And the house smelled wonderful too!

This recipe is pretty darn good as written, but even better if you substitute Asiago for the Parmesan and add some dried sweet basil---magnificent!

This sounds good! My dad is t2d so I need to reduce the sodium, sugar and carbs content. How would this be using half and half and whole grain pasta?

One of the few recipes I have found that is quick, easy and delicious. I did not change one thing. In the future, I might use ham or chicken in place of the prosciutto just for another variation. It is pretty much perfect as it is, however. Thank you for sharing with us.

This was great. Easy and quick to make. I like salt but I did not add any, as the recipe says, because I thought it was salty enough. Just before I served it I sprinkled mozzarella on top. Would definitely make this again.
