Sweet Peas With Prosciutto...Piselli al Prosciutto

Pin It

This is really an antipasto, at least that is how they serve it, "when in Rome".  To me, it's a delightful side dish which can be served with anything, particularly lamb. I have added some mint now that it's plentiful.



1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 oz. prosciutto, roughly chopped

1 small white onion, minced

1 lb. fresh or frozen green peas

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper,
to taste

Mint for garnish (my idea)

Directions1. Heat oil in a 12" skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto and onions; cook until onions are soft and prosciutto begins to crisp, 6–8 minutes.

2. Add peas and 1 tbsp. water; cook, tossing, until hot, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  1. Love the peas, new and crunchy tiny things, YUMM great idea recipe..Mom had a new potatoe, peeled and cut then steamed and peas added for a few minutes and tossed with a white sauce - she did it each had a light nutmeg flavor and was so good that I would be sad to see the bowl empty @missbusybiz
