Fresh Fig and Prosciutto Pasta Sauce

Recipe by  

"A yummy recipe to impress in a hurry. If you plan to eat it all yourself cut down on the figs or you'll pay later. Spoon sauce over warm plates of linguine or the like and top each the prosciutto and figs. The brie and pear alternative is great for the fall."

Without a doubt the most creative, incredible recipe I've found in forever. The figs, prosciutto, and white sauce with just that touch of lemon make this outstanding. This is a definite keeper, fit for company. Thanks for sharing. I was very impressed.
