This sauce is awesome! I had never made a real sauce from scratch before, so I was a little scarred. But it is easy and comes out delicious. The first time I made this I used chicken instead of the prosciutto. It was delicious the night I made it, but the chicken did not keep well and after the first day, it was not as good. I made it again now this time with the prosciutto. I didn't have chopped, so i got the sliced meat from the deli and just cut it up. I ended up using about a half a pound tho, and that was more than plenty. Other changes, I wasn't able to find fresh parsley or basil last minute, so I used dried, and that worked fine as well. I did not use quite as much tho.... probably about a little more than one table spoon. And the red pepper flakes, I only used a half a teaspoon and it was still plenty spicy. I also used a bit more garlic than the recipe called for, but I like things garlicky. One more thing. I let it cook much longer than the recipe said. I had it going for probably 2 and a half hours. I like the sauce nice and thick so I let it reduce down a lot before adding the cream. It came out much better the longer I had it on. 2 and a half was plenty long enough. This sauce went off great with everyone I gave it to. I even gave some to a friend who has his own pizza joint/Italian food place(and this is in Brooklyn) and he LOVED it. So, if i have the Pizza Guy's approval, its probably a good thing. I certainly recommend this recipe!
