  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
  2. Lightly grease a skillet with cooking spray. Cook the prosciutto in the skillet over medium heat until just brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, drain excess fat and set prosciutto aside on paper towels.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Slowly stir in 1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in small amounts. When all the cheese has been melted, stir in the peas and prosciutto. Allow to heat for 2 minutes more. Pour over drained pasta and toss lightly. Season with salt to taste and sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

I made this tonight for my husband and I and it was very delicious. I used diced prosciutto and added a bit of chopped garlic in with it. I also didn't have bow tie pasta so I used seashell and ...

I had to make use of leftover prosicutto, but no heavy cream or bow ties. I had a box of thin spaghetti and used a jar of store bought alfredo sauce with garlic and mozzarella inside that I had...

Wonderful! When I moved from AZ I missed this favorite dish at a local restaurant. Now I can make it whenever I want. I agree about substituting frozen peas for canned. To duplicate the rest...
