Spaghetti Alfredo with Crispy Prosciutto and Peas

Crispy pan-fried prosciutto and sweet tender peas are mixed into a creamy Alfredo sauce and then tossed with perfectly al dente spaghetti noodles.

Begin by bringing water to a boil in a large pot. Boil the pasta according to the package directions then drain.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pan. Sauté the prosciutto until crispy. Remove and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate.

Add the peas to the pan and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes, just until they are warmed through. Remove to plate with prosciutto.

Into the pan, add the butter, minced garlic, heavy cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Gently simmer for 2 minutes.

Reduce the heat and add the freshly grated parmesan cheese. Mix until melted and well combined.

Add the crispy prosciutto and peas to the Alfredo sauce. Tip - Set some of the peas and prosciutto aside to sprinkle on top. 

Toss the spaghetti noodles with the sauce. Top with the extra peas and prosciutto and serve immediately.
