Farfelle with Prosciutto and Green Peas in a Creamy Sauce

Last night I had a couple of GalPals over for food and a viewing of New Moon. I decided a simple meal would be easiest since our intermission of the movie would be dinner.

Farfelle with Prosciutto and Green Peas in a Creamy Sauce
Serves 4

1 box Farfalle pasta
2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
1 small Onion, chopped
6 ounces Prosciutto, cut into thin strips
1 1/2 cups Green peas
1/2 cup Dry white wine
2 cups Half and half
1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

1. Cook farfalle according to package.

2. Saute the onion in olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the prosciutto and peas and saute 3 more minutes. (I actually wouldn't put the peas in at this time. It takes about 5 minutes for the white wine to simmer down and that over cooks the peas. I'd put them in at the same time I put in the cream when I make this in the future. You really want the peas to be just warmed through).

3. Add white wine and simmer until mixture has reduced by half. Stir in half and half and heavy whipping cream. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 3 minutes.

4. Drain pasta, toss with sauce. Stir in Parmesan cheese before serving.
