4 cup chicken stock (reduced to 2 cups)

2 cup cream (reduced to 1 cup)

1 cup peas cooked

4 ounces prosciutto julienned into one-inch strips

1 teaspoons lemon zest

2 teaspoons kosher salt

2 tablespoons chives chopped, plus more for garnish

1 pounds fettucine

3 ounces Parmigiano Reggiano grated



Bring chicken stock to a boil and reduce by half. In a separate sauce pan, reduce cream by half; then add to chicken stock. Remove from heat and add peas, prosciutto, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt. Set sauce aside. Right before ready to serve, add chives. Season to taste with salt.

Cooking Pasta

Meanwhile, in a large pot of heavily salted boiling water, cook pasta until tender but firm to the bite, about 7-10 minutes. Drain pasta well, transfer to a bowl and toss gently with half the sauce, reserving remaining sauce for serving.


Spoon pasta onto a pasta plate. Add small ladleful of reserved sauce. Garnish with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and chives; then serve. Recipe created by Parties That Cook® www.PartiesThatCook.com
