A very simple, no havefrills pasta dinner to throw together with ripe summer tomatoes. The fresh tomatoes and basil are a classic summertime flavor.

This dinner comes together quickly and can be made any night of the week. This is a wonderfully fresh pasta that is perfect for summer. You can't beat the flavors of the fresh tomatoes and basil mixed with the simpleness of the prosciutto.

Recipe Cuisine: Italian Recipe Category: Pasta Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1/2 pound(s) prosciutto, cut into shreds
  • 1 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 1 - onion, chopped
  • 2-3 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 3-4 large tomatoes, sliced into thin wedges
  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh basil leaves, chopped (or more, if you like basil)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup(s) dry red wine (merlot, burgundy, etc.)
  • 1 pound(s) spaghetti, cooked al dente
Intructions :
  • In a large frying pan, toss prosciutto in 1 Tbsp butter until browned
  • Add onion and garlic and saut briefly, until just tender
  • Add sliced tomatoes, basil, parsley, and wine
  • Simmer for 15-20 minutes
  • Pour over pasta, toss, and serve!
  • NOTE: This is a simple recipe that can be adjusted to your individual tastes. You can add more prosciutto or tomatoes as you like, but I would increase the red wine a little as you increase the other ingredients
  • NOTE: when you buy your prosciutto at the deli, they will try to put pieces of paper/plastic in between the slices. Tell them not to do this, as you are going to roll up the prosciutto and cut it up. It makes it a lot harder if you have to peel the slices off the paper/plastic first.
