Peas with Prosciutto
Why This Recipe Works
While a peas with prosciutto recipe made with fresh peas is delicious, frozen peas work fine and are easier to find at the market and prepare. For our peas with prosciutto recipe we briefly blanched the peas in boiling water until they were just tender, then drained them well. We sautéed prosciutto cut into ribbons in butter (which we preferred over olive oil because of its milky sweetness), added a diced red onion for allium flavor, then stirred in the peas until heated through.
