I made this last night. EASY. All the ingredients were in the grocery store that I didn't have at home (sage, prosciutto,orecchiette)

Orecchiette with Prosciutto and Peas

1 lb. Orecchiette or medium shell pasta
2 Tbsp butter
1 clove garlic, minced
2 oz. prosciutto thinly sliced and cut in thin strips
╝ c. half and half
1 c. green peas (I used a whole bag of frozen since there are 5 of us, 1 c. is not enough)
2 fresh sage leaves, julienned, chopped, whatever
3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (Plus more)

Cook pasta. While past is cooking, sautÚ butter and garlic in a pan over medium low heat until garlic turns translucent, about 3 mins. Add prosciutto and half and half. Continue cooked until sauce thickens slightly, about 2 to 3 mins. Move sauce pan to top of pasta pan to keep warm.

Add peas at the last minute. Drain pasta and peas and add to saucepan with garlic cream. Add sage and cheese and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with cheese to taste and serve.
