NC Ingredients: prosciutto, heavy cream, chives
Cook tortellini according to package directions.
While it’s cooking: roughly chop the prosciutto into 2-inch pieces. Add butter to a frying pan and sauté prosciutto on medium-high for 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from heat, spoon off any grease and let cool slightly. Put it back on the burner at medium-high and add the cream and parmesan. Stir until it thickens a bit. Then add the peas and stir until they are warm. Add the chives and any salt or pepper to taste. You can also add more parmesan if you’d like. You will want the sauce to taste a bit salty because you are tossing it with the tortellini which can be a little bland.
Drain tortellini and put it back in the pot. Add the sauce and stir to coat the tortellini. Serve with grated parmesan.
