Prosciutto, Asparagus and Parmesan Spaghetti


        I could eat this entire bowl of spaghetti that you see in the picture. It has just the
    right combination of flavors and would be great for company coming over. It has the all
    the elements of sophistication for pasta. Serve with a nice side salad and a little glass
    of limoncello and I'd say you are good to go. Almost Rockstar quality! Make soon.

                                                Prosciutto, Asparagus and Parmesan Spaghetti

       8 ounce of angel hair pasta
       2 tablespoons of olive oil
       2 garlic cloves
       1 small onion, diced
       2 cups of sliced mushrooms
       4 oz. of prosciutto, cut into strips
       1 lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
       1 1/4 cups heavy cream
       1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
       salt and pepper
       1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes.

      1) Cook pasta according to directions and put pack in pot.
      2) Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Cook
      onion, garlic, and mushrooms until fragrant and semi done. Add Prosciutto
      and asparagus and cook until asparagus is bright green, about 3 min. Add
      cream, 1/3 cup cheese, salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat
      to simmer and cook until sauce has thickened, about 4 minutes.
      3) Pour sauce with vegetables over pasta and toss to coat.
      4. I put more parmesan cheese on top and crisp prosciutto pieces that I baked.

  28. Looks great Val. Especially for a day like this, it's cold and windy and partly cloudy. Thanks for the post. I love whole wheat pasta, but I also love angel hair pasta.

    Question? Have you ever made Risotto? Is it hard? I've seen so many great recipes for this with vegetables. Any suggestions?

    Talk to you soon,

  52. Great post. I love asparagus. I did a bacon and asparagus salad recently. http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2011/11/asparagus-bacon-salad.html

    ReplyDelete
  53. How did I miss this recipe?? Simply amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. This looks and sounds wonderful, but I'm looking at the directions and it mentions onions?

    ReplyDelete
  55. So you might have already mentioned this in the comments, but how much onion do you put in the recipe? It's not in the list of ingredients, but it's in the directions. I'm making a variation of this right now for lunch but with chicken instead and no mushrooms and my own white sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I made this last night, but since I'm not a fan of mushrooms I substituted them for black olives and this was delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I added seafood - clams, crab and shrimp with a little more garlic and it was amazing! Thanks for the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Found my way here via Iowa Girl Eats!
    Made this tonight for dinner, it's a keeper....thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  59. This was delish! I made it last night. Iowa Girl Eats gave it a shout out and I enjoy her - so thought I would swing over and check out this recipe. I made it last night...Was terrific. I did use Evaporated Milk instead of the heavy cream and it turned out wonderful and still creamy....with way less fat ;) ...I also used some onion as the directions called for sauteeing and onion, but the ingredient list didn't include one....so I just kinda winged it! ;) Thanks - I enjoyed!

  60. I just made this for dinner and it was delicious!!! Thank you for sharing!! I found it on Pinterest. I forgot to buy heavy cream so I Googled substitutions and used lowfat milk, butter and flour. Came out amazing, and my husband devoured every last morsel in the dish, so no leftovers for tomorrow! :(
