Braised Peas with Prosciutto

Total Time

The prosciutto adds a lovely flavor. I like to add a bit of extra butter before serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan, add onions and cook over medium heat until soft and golden brown.
  2. Add broth, bring to a boil, add peas, return to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until tender (the amount of time will depend on the size of the peas, so check the package directions).
  3. Add prosciutto, cook uncovered until most of the liquid is absorbed and season with salt and pepper.

Fabulous! So simple yet sophisticated and let's not forget delectable. The only change I made is adding prosciutto with the butter in order to crisp it up a bit. Thank you.

Good side dish. Goes really well with an Italian entree.
