I have this wonderfull pasta book and all the dishes are written in Italian name ( i think atleast) and it is so funny to read the names if one don't know the language itself like me.Translated this dish is called Pasta withy peas and ham.
My daughter loves this dish, everytime I make this her plate is fully empty. Only thing she picks out is the tiny pieces of onions in it.
25 gm butter
1 tbsp olive oilI
150 gm peas ( i used frozen ones)
2 garlic cloves
150 ml Chicken broth
200 ml cream
150 gm parma ham in slices
350 gm pipe rigate pasta
Salt and peper to taste
Paremesan cheese grated few tbsp
Few tbsp parsley for garnish
Melt the butter in a pan together with the oilive oil. Add the onions and garlic and fry for few minutes. Add then the ham , fry for few more minutes and now add the peas and the chicken broth.
Cook for some five minutes till the peas are cooked. Add the cream and cook boil for 2 minutes. Add salt and peper to your taste.
In the mean time cook the pasta and drain.Add the drain pasta to the sauce, mix well and serve with grated cheese and parsley.
