Print This
Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 pound small pasta shells or elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • One 10-ounce package frozen peas
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced country ham or prosciutto, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped dill
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta shells until al dente. Drain the shells, return them to the pot and toss with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until golden, about 4 minutes. Add the peas and ham and cook until the peas are hot and the ham is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and stock and simmer over moderate heat until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir the cream sauce into the shells. Add the Parmesan and dill and season with salt and pepper. Serve in bowls.
