Here is a picture of the cast. Very easy and simple dish. First, get your water on to boil, make sure to salt the water, cook your pasta according to the package, I used whole wheat here
First get the prosciutto on To crisp up and render out some fat, cooked on medium/ high heat
While that's going let's chop some veg! Skin and half the onion *tip wrap the other half in a paper towel and out it in a container, it'll keep for a while in the refrigerator.
dice the onion
Peel garlic, either mince Finley or use a garlic press, I always keep my garlic press on hand.
Starting to brown up
Chop parsley and set aside
Nice and crisp and brown, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside
Same pan, if there is enough fat from the prosciutto cool, if not add a tbl spoon of olive oil, keep heat medium/high
Toss the onion in and cook it out for 5 or so minutes
After the 5 minutes add your garlic, here I am pressing it
Add it to the garlic and stir, cook another 2-3 minutes remove from heat
In the same pot you cooked your pasta in, add a few tbl spoons of olive oil, medium/ high heat
Add prosciutto and onion mix, stir
Add butter and stir
Then add pasta, stir again
While that's heating up, beat eggs with parmesan cheese
Once pasta mixture is hot remove from heat, add egg mix, salt and pepper and Italian seasoning stir your butt off until it's fully mixed and creamy. 3-4 minutes
Add fresh parsley and juice from lemon. Also a little of the zest if you want, one last mix and were ready!
And here we go, tastes great, and makes my wife happy everytime! Enjoy, please leave any comments if you like. Until next time.
