This was quick and easy. I only made one change. I used asiago cheese instead of the parmesan. Next time, I might try other veggies like broccoli or asparagus tips. Also, I might try sauteing the prosciutto and garlic first. Thanks for a tasty, quick dinner!

I made this tonight using half-and-half instead of the evaporated milk and broccoli instead of the peas. (I needed to use those things from my fridge.) I must second the vote that this was quick and easy. I downsized the amounts of everything and served it as a hearty side dish to our meal.
