Prosciutto and Asparagus Pasta - Recipes [4-2-17]

Prosciutto and Asparagus Pasta


1/2 pound fresh asparagus spears or 1 (10-ounce) package frozen asparagus spears
4 ounces prosciutto ham, thinly sliced and cut into 1-inch strips (see Note)
3/4 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup butter (1/2 cube), melted
1/2 pound linguine or fettuccine


In a medium saucepan, steam or boil asparagus until crisp-tender. Drain and cut into bite-sized pieces.

In a medium bowl, combine asparagus and prosciutto. In a large bowl, combine cheese, sour cream, wine and butter. Mix well. Add asparagus-prosciutto mixture.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain well, but do not rinse. Transfer pasta to a warm serving platter and toss with sauce. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan, if desired. Serve immediately.

Note: Prosciutto is a cured ham that is available at specialty markets and delicatessens. Garnish with strips of sun-dried tomatoes.

Serves: 4
