In this video, you’ll see Chef John prepare a quick-and-easy pasta dish that was inspired by frugal Depression-era cooking. Chopped onions and just a little prosciutto (or Serrano ham) cook with garlic, red pepper flakes, and homemade chicken stock. You’ll cook the pasta in the simmering stock, along with peas and some white beans. The pasta and beans will soak up the delicious broth. This is one tasty cheap eat! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Penne Pasta with Peas and Prosciutto. Top it with a little grated Parmesan cheese.
