Refreshing, light pasta dish! Used 3 garlic cloves instead of garlic paste, and omitted the salt. I felt it was salty enough with the prosciutto. Next time I would add more sun-dried tomatoes and maybe a touch more lemon. Thanks for posting! Made for PRMR.
This was a good pasta. I played with the portions a bit, decreasing the oil, prosciutto, salt, spinach and nuts, so it only fed 3 for us. I also took another reviewer's advice and doubled the sun dried tomatoes. I used Crispy Crumbled Prosciutto so the prosciutto would be really crispy. Thanks!
