Tasty Tuesday: Creamy Prosciutto Pasta

This is a super easy pasta dish from Taste of Home. It is quick and easy because it uses store bought Alfredo sauce. If you prefer to make your own, go right ahead. I only made one change to the original recipe; it called for 9 oz. of refrigerated pasta, and I used 12 oz. of dried. It came out delicious! One more tip; when buying prosciutto, buy it sliced fresh at the deli counter. This is cheaper than buying the pre-packaged prosciutto.

Creamy Prosciutto Pasta
12 oz. dried fettuccine
1/2 lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 pkg. fresh baby spinach
1 jar (15 oz.) Alfredo sauce
1/3 lb. thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large pan, sauté mushrooms and onion in butter until tender.

Add spinach and reduce heat.

Cook just until spinach is wilted.

Stir in Alfredo sauce and prosciutto; cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

Drain pasta;add to sauce and toss to coat.
This yields 4 large servings.

Bon appétit ~Marla
