Peas With Prosciutto

Peas With Prosciutto

Spring is about bright and vibrant colors and flavors. This dish is as pretty as it is tasty. Peas are considered by most people to be a vegetable, but because they grow in a pod, botanically they are a fruit.


1/4 Cup Olive Oil

2 Minced Garlic Cloves

3 Minced Shallots

4 Ounces Chopped Prosciutto

1 Pound Fresh or Frozen Peas

1/4 Cup Diced Red Bell Pepper

1/4 Cup Low-Sodium Chicken Broth

Kosher Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper To Taste

In a large-size skillet, combine olive oil, garlic and shallots. Cook on a medium heat for 4 minutes. Add prosciutto and cook for another 4 minutes. Add peas, bell pepper and chicken broth. Cook for 10 minutes. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Remove from heat and transfer to serving bowl. Serve hot or set aside to serve later at room temperature. Serve 4 to 6 as a side dish.
