Tasty Tuesday - Val's Prosciutto, Asparagus & Parmesan Spaghetti

Sorry for the late post today! Things are starting to get busy around the work place and my attention span is that of a gnat's! Speaking of gnats, they're getting bad around here. I've got the marks on my legs to prove it. Pretty.

Moving on to the main reason for this post - you've probably all seen this recipe pinned on Pinterest a million times..and for a good reason. It looks amazing and not only that, it TASTES amazing! So light and refreshing. The perfect meal to eat on your back porch with a glass of white wine.

8 ounce of angel hair pasta
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 garlic cloves
2 cups of sliced mushrooms
4 oz. of prosciutto, cut into strips
1 lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

     Cook pasta according to directions and put back in pot.

      Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Cook
onion, garlic, and mushrooms until fragrant and semi done. Add prosciutto
and asparagus and cook until asparagus is bright green, about 3 min. Add
cream, 1/3 cup cheese, salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat
to simmer and cook until sauce has thickened, about 4 minutes.

      Pour sauce with vegetables over pasta and toss to coat.

For extra yumminess, put more parmesan cheese on top and baked crisp prosciutto pieces.
