Prosciutto and Penne

September 13, 2010

After rummaging through mother’s recipes the other weekend, I walked away with one that seemed so fast, so easy and would be great to make when you really do not have a lot of time to make a time-consuming gravy. On Friday, my best friend came over for dinner and I made this pasta dish in 30 minutes. I added sausage to it to make more like a bolognese but you can also add pork.

Prosciutto with Penne
1 lb. pasta
1 can plum tomatoes chopped
1/4 lb. proscuitto chopped
1 tblsp olive oil
1 tblsp fresh basil
4 tblsp. butter
1 large onion chopped

Saute onion in butter and olive oil. Add Proscuitto and saute for 1 minute. Add in the sausage cook for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, and basil, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Serve over pasta.
