Daily Recipe - Pasta with Peas, Ham and Cream

by Divine Domesticity on April 5th, 2008

Fettuccine with Peas, Ham, Cream and Parmesan
Serves 4

2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
3 ounces cooked Parma ham, cut into 1/8" matchsticks
1 cup frozen peas, defrosted
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound fresh or dried fettuccine
Parmesan cheese for garnish

1. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes. Raise the heat to medium-high. Add chicken stock, cream, ham and peas; season with salt and pepper. Let the sauce cook until it is reduced by half, stirring frequently until it has thickened. (This took me about 12-15 minutes)

2. Salt the boiling water, add pasta, and cook until al dente. Drain fettuccine, and return to pot. Add sauce to fettuccine, and toss to combine. Transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Love this pasta! It looks very fresh and vibrant. I've made a similar dish with prosciutto. Always a crowd pleaser! :)
