This was really simple and great! I did use olive oil instead of butter.

I was a bit disappointed with the flavor or this dish. It just seemed that there wasn't one. It was easy and quick to prepare.

I had some leftover prosciutto from another recipe and found this, and it was perfect. Loved the flavor.

Great base for a recipe. I too used olive oil instead of butter. I also added yellow squash since we've had a bumper crop for our garden. Quick and easy-tastes terrific!

This dish was FANTASTIC! My first experience cooking with prosciutto and even the picky hubby LOVED IT! I would suggest cutting the amount of peas down to half a cup unless you REALLLY LOVE peas, and adding a clove or two of fresh chopped garlic. Sprinkled feta cheese on top and used cherry tomatoes, halved. WILL DEFINITELY make this again! Remember, prosciutto is salty so this dish requires no additional salt added.

While this had a very nice smokey flavor, we felt it could have done with some sauce, perhaps a mild alfredo. This definitely has enormous potential. Thanks!

Great recipe! We loved the flavor and simplicity of this. Tastes like it took longer to prepare than it did. Followed the recipe exactly.
