Creamy Fettuccine with Asparagus, Peas, and Prosciutto

Creamy Fettuccine with Asparagus, Peas, and Prosciutto
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
  • 1 (1 ounce) slice prosciutto, cut into thin strips


  1. Combine the asparagus, peas, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover the saucepan and cook until the vegetables are beginning to become tender, yet retain some crispness, about 5 minutes; drain any remaining liquid and set the vegetables aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir the flour into the butter until combined, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the milk, raise heat to medium and cook, whisking frequently, until the mixture thickens, another 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the garlic powder and Parmesan cheese into the sauce; season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the fettuccine in the boiling water until the pasta is cooked yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain and return the fettuccine to the pot. Stir the vegetables, the sauce, and the prosciutto into the fettuccine.
