creamy pasta prosciutto


  • 150 g pasta (penne)
  • 2/3 c cream (whipping)
  • 1 t chicken bouillon
  • 1/4 c grated asiago cheese
  • 1/2 t Corn Starch / Corn Flour
  • 2 t water
  • 2 t butter
  • 1/4 c chopped prosciutto
  • 1 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/4 c sliced mushrooms
  • 1/3 c diced tomato
  • 1.5 T cream (whipping)
  • 1/2 t dried parsley flakes


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain, and set aside.

In a small saucepan, bring 2/3 cup cream to a simmer, stirring often. Whisk in bouillon and cheese until well blended and bouillon has dissolved completely. Dissolve cornstarch in water, and whisk into mixture. Cook and stir till the cream thickens, then remove from heat and set aside.

Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Stir in prosciutto, garlic, and mushrooms; cook until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Add tomato, remaining cream, and parsley flakes; heat through.

To serve, place pasta in a large mixing or serving bowl. Add the mushroom mixture and pour in cream sauce. Toss well, and serve.


SJ Note 28 Sep 2011: This is good!  Needs salt and pepper, though, and might try onion next time, too.
