Fresh Pappardelle with Prosciutto and Peas

If your New Years resolution was to eat healthy and lose weight, then this dish is not for you. But if you’re like me, you have to cheat every so often. And this is the PERFECT cheat meal. The sauce is simple, but it’s such a great way to highlight the fresh pasta.

Serve this with a bottle of good wine and you’ve got winter comfort food at it’s finest. I seriously don’t think there’s much better than this.

You can find my recipe for fresh pasta here. You don’t have to make your own pasta, but I absolutely recommend doing so!
