Recipe by quikgourmet
READY IN: 40mins




  • While water is heating to cook the pasta, bring the broth, garlic, cream, and red pepper to a boil in a separate saucepan.
  • Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes to allow it to thicken.
  • You'll know it's thickened when the cream coats the back of the spoon.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Cook pasta; while it's cooking, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Add mushrooms and proscuitto; cook until tender, about 10 minutes, and then remove from heat.
  • Drain the pasta and place it back into the same pot.
  • Add the cream and the mushroom/proscuitto mixture.
  • Stir over low heat until the pasta is mixed with the sauce and all is warmed.
  • Toss with the parmesan cheese.
  • Cover and let it stand for 1 minute, and then transfer to your favorite pasta bowl and serve.
