Farfalle With Prosciutto-melon Cream Sauce
Why I Love This Recipe
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.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 Tbsp butter
2 slices prosciutto, cut into 3/4" squares
1 cup cantelope, 3/4" cubes
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
2 servings Farfalle, cooked and drained
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!
