Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
The first thing is to finely chop the White Onion (1/2), Garlic (2 clove), Plum Tomato (8), and Fresh Basil Leaf (1 handful). Set aside.
Step 2
Cut in thin slices the Prosciutto (3 slice) and set aside. I also like to remove the fat but this is not essential I just think it makes it slightly healthier.
Step 3
Once all the chopping is done stir fry the prosciutto in a hot pan with Olive Oil (to taste) until is crispy and put on kitchen to absorb the extra oil.
Step 4
In the same pan, add the chopped onion and garlic and cook until the onion is starting to soften.
Step 5
Then add the Green Peas (250 gram), leaving 3 tbsp aside for later and a splash of water, leave to cook at a medium temperature. Then add the Red Chili Pepper (1/2) and chopped basil mix and continue to cook.
Step 6
Season with Salt and Pepper (to taste) to your taste and continue to cook at a low temperature. In the meantime, cook the Spaghetti (150 gram) following the package instructions.
Step 7
Reserve some of the pasta water in a cup and add half of it to the peas, mix and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
Step 8
Using a handheld blender, blend the peas to a rough texture leaving some whole and add the remaining of the pasta water. Add the chopped tomato and continue to cook.
Step 9
Once the pasta is cooked add it to the peas and mix. If the sauce is too thick add more pasta water. Mix and add the remaining 3 tbsp of peas, Mozzarella Cheese (to taste) and Parmigiano-Reggiano (to taste).
Step 10
Serve and enjoy!
