If you are a lover of Gorgonzola cheese, then you will love this pasta dish! The proscuitto can be omitted, but I like to add it in.
- 1 lb fettuccine (uncooked)
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil or 1⁄4 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic (or to taste)
- 1 1⁄2 cups gorgonzola, crumbled
- 1 cup whipping cream (unwhipped)
- 1 cup half-and-half cream
- 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes (can use more)
- salt and black pepper
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 9 slices prosciutto, chopped
- 1 1⁄4 cups grated parmesan cheese (can use more to taste)
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley
