Peas with Prosciutto

Found somewhere in the depths of Pinterest, this was another very simple and pretty Easter size capitalizing on Spring veggies (okay, I had to use frozen peas =/ But still). The salty prosciutto went well with the ham, of course. Definitely a side I would make again for a crowd, quick and attractive.

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 shallots, chopped 
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed through a garlic press or very finely minced
  • 1 pound frozen peas
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, diced
  • handful chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil, then add the shallots and garlic. Sauté about 1-2 minutes.

Add the peas to the skillet and stirring frequently, heat through (about 5 – 7 minutes depending on the size of your peas).

Remove the skillet from the heat and add in the prosciutto, parsley, salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.

Serve immediately.
