Pasta With Asparagus & Ham

Pasta with Asparagus & Ham

Made with fettuccine, asparagus, Virginia ham, chopped garlic, thyme, dry white wine, heavy cream, nutmeg, Parmesan cheese, and salt & pepper.

Oh, for the love of pasta!  I loved this recipe.

Since the prosciutto at the health food store was astronomical in price, I decided to use ham as a substitute which worked fabulously.

Recipe for—Pasta With Asparagus & Prosciutto

So, if you have nothing else to do today, love yourself some pasta dishes.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  You can easily replace prosciutto with ham and replace pancetta with bacon.  Good to know.  Prosciutto and pancetta are much more expensive than ham and bacon.

  1. This looked so good I made if for our dinner last night. I used prosciutto and after I’d crisped it, sauteed the asparagus in the rendered fat for a couple of minutes (until it was bright green) then finished the sauce. I cut the asparagus a bit longer than the recipe suggested. The dish was divine!

    1. Ooooo! I bet it tasted even better with actual prosciutto instead of ham. I’ll have to try it the way you did it next time I make it. I just love pasta dishes. Thanks for letting me know how it turned out for you. 🙂
