Yesterday I was looking for a recipe and came across the recipe for one of my favorite pasta dishes. Growing up this was one of my favorite recipes that my Mom cooked. I think it originally came from a Weight Watchers cookbook but don't hold me to that since I don't know the nutritional content.
Prosciutto and Pasta
8 oz. angel hair pasta
10 oz. asparagus spears, broken into pieces and cooked
1/2 C Parmesan cheese
1/2 C plain yogurt
1/3 C dry white wine
2 TBSP melted butter
6 oz. Prosciutto or deli ham, cut into strips
Cook the pasta according to the package. Drain well.
Cook asparagus until tender.
In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, yogurt, wine, butter, and ham.
Combine with the cooked pasta and asparagus.
Notes: I use the cheapo package of super thin sliced ham like Budding. I also used Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt and it tasted fine. The recipe actually calls for frozen asparagus but I always use fresh.
This is a super easy and super quick recipe that I somehow seem to forget about. It's probably a good thing because I tend to eat 3 servings because I love it sooooo much. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
