Melt butter over medium heat and cook prosciutto for 2 minutes. Add cantelope and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add milk and cream, bring to boil, and simmer for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in a few grinds of black pepper and add salt to taste. Toss with pasta and divide between two bowls. Top with chopped cilantro and enjoy - really enjoy!

Cantelope and prosciutto taste great together in wrapped melon balls but I was still surprised at how great this pasta sauce turned out.

You can alternate the amount of 2% milk and heavy cream, but keep the dairy at about 3/4 cup total.
