Wide, flat pappardelle pasta creates a refined presentation: Its cascading quality gives the dish more height. If you can't find pappardelle, substitute a short pasta, such as cavatappi or penne. You can complete steps 1 through 3 up to a day ahead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 10 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 10 minutes. Peel and cut into thin strips.

Step 3

Combine olives and next 6 ingredients (olives through black pepper) in a bowl. Add bell pepper strips and chopped parsley; toss gently to combine.

Step 4

Cook prosciutto in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until crisp; remove from pan. Add bell pepper mixture to pan; cook over low heat 3 minutes or until heated.

Step 5

Place pasta in a large bowl. Add bell pepper mixture and prosciutto; toss gently to combine. Sprinkle with cheese. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
