This is a twist on carbonara. Farfalle pasta is combined with a rich Parmesan cream sauce, peas and prosciutto. If you use frozen peas, microwave them in a bit of water first for about 3 to 5 minutes so that they're cooked through.
Great recipe; can't help but wonder why people prepare meals such as this and consequently criticize the fat and sodium content. If it's your desire to cut down on your fat and sodium intake, for the love......make something that's low in fat and sodium. Don't screw up someone else's recipe and then complain about it! - 02 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is to die for. The only thing I did change was using roasted garlic and frozen peas instead of canned. I just placed the frozen peas in a little warm water until they thawed, then added them. Canned peas are a bit too mushy for my family. Thank you so much for submitting this recipe. It works every time! - 05 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've tried this recipe with minor changes--I love roasted garlic, so I roasted a head (40 mins in an oven @ 425, covered in olive oil and in a foil pouch) and caramelized onion. It is to DIE for! - 29 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
