About this recipe: This salad has an unbelievably good combination of flavours. Farfalle pasta is tossed with prosciutto, peas, dried cranberries, grapes, spring onions and water chestnuts in a creamy dressing. It's the perfect side dish at summer barbecues.
Delicious! I made this for my husband and his parents for his birthday picnic. It worked perfectly, tasted great and wasn't that difficult to make. I did not cook the prosciutto, because we love the flavor it already has. Might as well use (much cheaper) bacon if you're going to fry it up. It was great with the prosciutto as is. In the future, I'd up the grapes, and decrease the peas a little as there were a bunch left over at the end. Thanks for a keeper! - 30 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very good... we cut back on the peas, put in mostly for color. Next time i will substitute broccoli.. Good flavors but need more dressing, maybe a 1/3 more..will make again with those changes.... good base recipe! - 27 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
