Peas.  Ahhhh peas.  I absolutely hated peas as a child.  My parents can attest to that fact… I spent many a dinner time, staring at my plate of peas, determined to NOT eat them lol.  I remember having to clean my plate before I could leave the table, so I would grudgingly eat a spoonful of peas, then gulp down half a glass of water or milk to get them down.  As I grew older I realized I was a fool, and peas are actually really delicious!  These peas with shallots and prosciutto are amazing, you just have to try them!!  Don’t be surprised if you reach for seconds, or even thirds!

Here’s how to make them… toss some garlic and shallots into a skillet with some olive oil or butter.  Once they’ve cooked a few minutes, add in some sliced proscuitto ham.  Once shallots and garlic are translucent, add in a bag of frozen peas and stir until heated through.  Serve topped with parsley and a sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese.  Simple right?

I like to serve these peas with prosciutto just about anytime, but they’re fancy enough to have for a dinner party side dish, or at a big holiday feast!  We have several holiday meals coming up over the next few months, and these would be perfect.  I don’t know about you, but I get tired of the same old side dishes, and these peas would be a fabulous change up!

WHAT IS PROSCIUTTO?

It’s delicious!  Okay okay, not the answer you wanted right?  It’s actually an Italian dry-cured ham, which is generally sold in thin slices.  It has a salty, buttery flavor and just melts in your mouth!  Do yourself a favor and add some to your next sandwich, wrap some around a piece of mozzarella cheese, or make this amazing stuffed chicken Florentine!  In my grocery store, it’s sold pre-sliced, in a package near the deli.
