Peas and Prosciutto

    Here's a simple and delicious side dish to add to your recipe box. can have it ready in about 15-20 minutes!  The saltiness of the prosciutto adds a nice contrast to the otherwise mellow peas.  This dish is great to add to a mid-week meal, when you might not have a lot of time, but  goes equally well on a holiday table with all of the other "special" foods.

Look!  Only 6 ingredients, plus salt and pepper!

Peas and Prosciutto   (6 side dish servings)

2 tblsp. olive oil
3 shallots, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 # bag frozen peas
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over med.-low.  Add the shallots and garlic, and saute until tender, about 1 minute.

Add the peas and saute until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the prosciutto, parsley, and salt and pepper, to taste.  (Remember, prosciutto is salty, so go easy with the salt until you've tasted.)  

That's it!  Pour into a serving dish and bring to the table!  Couldn't be easier!

Now, that's some delicious green, right there!
