8 oz Angel Hair pasta

1 tbsp olive oil

½ large onion sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups sliced mushrooms

4 oz prosciutto, cut into strips

1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 ¼ cups heavy whipping cream

¼ cup Parmigiana Reggiano or Pecorino Romano cheese, grated (more for serving)

½ tsp pepper

½ tsp chili flakes

  2. Add prosciutto and asparagus and cook until asparagus is bright green, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add cream, pepper and chili flakes. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Meanwhile cook Angel Hair pasta according to package directions, about 2 or 3 minutes.
  5. Drain pasta, return to pot and add the sauce. Stir to coat and serve with additional cheese.
