Creamy Garlic Pasta with Mushrooms and Prosciutto

Creamy Garlic Pasta with Mushrooms and Prosciutto

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup(s) chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup(s) whipping cream
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup(s) parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 1 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 12 ounce(s) mushrooms cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 12 ounce(s) penne pasta
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) frozen green peas (or edamame) thawed
  • 8 thin prociutto slices cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices
  • additional grated parmesan


Bring broth, cream, garlic, and crushed red pepper to boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is reduced to 3/4 cup, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; cover and keep warm.

Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until brown and tender, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite.

Drain pasta and return to pot. Add cream mixture, mushrooms and peas and stir over low heat until well coated with sauce, about 3 minutes. Mix in prosciutto. Cover and let stand 1 minute. Transfer to bowl. Serve, passing additional Parmesan cheese separately.
