Prosciutto Pasta Toss

I love quick, simple dishes, and this pasta with prosciutto and peas is one of my favorites. I prepare a tossed green salad while the pasta cooks and serve up a lovely light supper in minutes! —Laura Murphy-Ogden, Charlotte, North Carolina

    My hubby really Loved this dish. I thought it was kind of oily, but my hubby thought it was great and wants me to make it again. Besides being “oily”, I thought it was very flavorful and very easy to make.

    I had to improvise by using rice fettuccini pasta (I'm allergic to wheat), and I didn't have any peas, but we gobbled this up! It was very yummy and very satisfying. Great recipe and EASY!

    We substituted Italian sausage for the ham and corn for the peas. We also added onion and green pepper to the mix. If we have frozen shrimp or scallops on hand, we use those as well. We have used different kinds of pasta to go with it and it always turns out great!

    I love this recipe & have made it numerous times. When I make it, I usually substitute asparagus for the peas. Yum!

    Used deli ham and added 4 cups shredded cabbage (cooked with the ham and spices). If I was to make again, which I probably won't, I would use 16 ounces of peas PLUS the 4 cups shredded cabbage. Definitely not enough veggies in this dish.Also, not sure where all the oil was used, but I only used about 2 Tbsp in the whole recipe.

    Substituted peas with asparagus which I cut small to fit recipe. Also, used bowtie pasta which is the pasta the family prefers. Its OK, felt like it was lacking some zip though.

    My husband & I love this recipe - so simple & tasty! We add a sprinkle of dried hot pepper flakes, and asparagus makes a super substitute for the peas!

    We thought the dish was all right, but I doubt I'd make it again. Kind of boring.
