Straw and hay tagliatelle in this version with cream, peas and prosciutto are a tasty, quick and easy first course that gives a nice color play thanks to the contrasting colors between the green and white tagliatelle.

 


 

 

 

SERVINGS:4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup finely minced onion
  • 4 ounces prosciutto, julienne
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh peas
  • 6 ounces fresh egg fettuccine
  • 6 ounces fresh spinach fettuccine
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

 

 

METHOD

In a large stockpot, bring salted water to a rapid boil.

2. In a large saute pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and butter. When the butter is melted, add the onions and saute until translucent, but not browned, about 1 minute. Add the prosciutto and cook 1 more minute, stirring. Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the sauce is just thick enough to lightly coat the back of a spoon. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Add the peas and remove from the heat.

3. Cook the pasta to al dente. Return the sauce to the heat. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce. Toss well and season with salt and pepper. Finish with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and more cracked black pepper.
