     Tortellini w/Peas and Prosciutto

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4
Preptime   50 mins

1 lb meat-filled tortellini
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 oz prosciutto or pancetta, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook as the label directs.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and prosciutto and cook until crisp, 3-4 mins. Stir in the garlic and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 min. Ladle in about 1 cup of the pasta cooking water and simmer until reduced by about half, 3-4 mins. Add the cream and simmer until slightly thickened, 2-3 mins.
About 2 mins before the tortellini are done, add the peas to the boiling water and cook until just tender. Drain the tortellini and peas and add to the skillet, tossing to coat with the sauce. Stir in the parsley. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
