Angel Hair w asparagus, grape tomatoes, prosciutto


Angel hair pasta
Asparagus cut into 1”pieces
Shallot sliced thinly
Garlic I clove pressed
Grape tomatoes cut in ½
Prosciutto sliced into thin strip
Olive oil
Fresh lemon juice


Cook prosciutto in olive oil, remove and set aside.
Add garlic and shallots to pan and cook for 4-5 minutes before adding the asparagus and tomatoes plus salt, basil or dill and red pepper flakes if desired. After 3-4 minutes add the lemon juice. Cook for another 4-6 minutes before adding the pasta to the pan.


Exercising the cook’s prerogative I decided to add some white wine and cream to the dish…, which turned out to be a good decision. Both P and I give this a 10. I know, we give out a lot of 10s…but hey, you gotta call a spade a spade, and this was good!!

OMG ... talk about one of my favorite combos! Bill, you've inspired me to eat better in my quest to get my diet back under control to get my CHF back under control; and prove that you can eat well on under 2000mg of sodium a day (working down to 1500!) ...sue

Green beans are absolutely wonderful when paired with the red "grape" tomatoes ... discovered this last summer!
