  • 12 ounces egg noodles or pasta such as fettuccine, linguini or spaghetti
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ounces salt pork, diced very small (see here)
  • ½ pound prosciutto diced into small pieces (stack slices and slice the long way into strips, then slice the opposite way into pieces)

  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add noodles and cook to al dente. Drain and toss with melted butter.
  2. At the same time, in a large sauté pan over medium high, heat oil and salt pork and cook until crisp. Add prosciutto and cook until meat is crisp. Drain off fat and discard.
  3. Place cooked meat, cream, peas, pepper and half the cheese back into the pan and cook just to hot. Add buttered noodles and remaining cheese. Toss and serve.
