Great recipe; can't help but wonder why people prepare meals such as this and consequently criticize the fat and sodium content. If it's your desire to cut down on your fat and sodium intake, for the love......make something that's low in fat and sodium. Don't screw up someone else's recipe and then complain about it!
to lower the fat and sodiunm I would start by using turkey bacon instead of prosciutto, fat free half and half instead of heavy cream, frozen peas instead of canned and half the parmesean. I always substitute with lower fat versions and the family usually can't even tell the difference!
This is to die for. The only thing I did change was using roasted garlic and frozen peas instead of canned. I just placed the frozen peas in a little warm water until they thawed, then added them. Canned peas are a bit too mushy for my family. Thank you so much for submitting this recipe. It works every time!
I've tried this recipe with minor changes--I love roasted garlic, so I roasted a head (40 mins in an oven @ 425, covered in olive oil and in a foil pouch) and caramelized onion. It is to DIE for!
This is exactly like the carbonara recipe that I used to enjoy weekly at my first job at a local italian restaurant that sadly closed down a year or two ago. A quality bacon can also be subbed for the prosciutto without harming the flavor and if you prefer your sauce very thick an easy way is to add a couple teaspoons of flour (up to a tablespoon, however you need to leave at least an equal amount of oil/drippings in the pan) after you've sauteed the meat in the pan, stir it around and let it cook for a minute before slowly whisking in the cream. Wonderful comfort food! Thank you for posting!
I made this tonight for my husband and I and it was very delicious. I used diced prosciutto and added a bit of chopped garlic in with it. I also didn't have bow tie pasta so I used seashell and I think it works better than bow tie because the peas and diced prosciutto can fit inside, so yummy!
I had to make use of leftover prosicutto, but no heavy cream or bow ties. I had a box of thin spaghetti and used a jar of store bought alfredo sauce with garlic and mozzarella inside that I had on hand instead. I sauteed the prosciutto with slices of half an onion first until the onions were almost clear. I had no peas, but used 1/2 a can of chopped asparagus. Added the vegetable and the sauce and heated it through. This is a REALLY good, quick, and versatile meal. My boyfriend finished his whole plate. Although next time I would use thinner sliced prosciutto (I had thickness #3 on hand from the deli).
Wonderful! When I moved from AZ I missed this favorite dish at a local restaurant. Now I can make it whenever I want. I agree about substituting frozen peas for canned. To duplicate the restaurant's version, I'm going to try artichoke hearts instead of peas. So easy it's ridiculous!
