Prosciutto Pasta Toss


1 package (16 ounces) linguine
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 pound thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


Cook linguine according to package directions, adding peas during the last 3 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the garlic, Italian seasoning and pepper in the oil for 2-3 minutes or until garlic is tender. Stir in prosciutto.
Drain linguine; add to skillet and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Yield: 6 servings

My notes: I saute some fresh mushrooms and finely chopped sweet onion with the garlic. I also use fresh snap peas coarsely chopped which I add to the whole mixture when I add the prosciutto. Sometimes I add some finely chopped fresh basil too!

Corn Dip/Salsa

1 chopped green pepper
1 chopped onion
1 can shoe peg corn
1 can black beans (or garbanzo beans, black eyed peas,etc) I just use little black beans
1 small jar pimentos
1 avocado
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl except the avocado
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons Tiger Sauce (located in grocery store by marinades & hot sauces)

Pour marinade over ingredients and refrigerate overnight. Drain off excess liquid before serving. Peel, cut up and add avocado just before serving.

This recipe gets rave reviews no matter where I take it!
