Solo Pasta with Prosciutto and Olives

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

This recipe, with a green salad will make a nice meal for one, but it can be expanded. The light garlic oil sauce allows the olives and prosciutto to express their individual flavors.

This was very tasty, and very easy to make. But between the prosciutto, spanish olives and parmesan cheese, it was quite salty. I like salty, and I'll definitely make it again so this comment is really an FYI to others...
