Fettuccine with Apples, Prosciutto, & Mascarpone

Categories [pasta]



  1. In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, sauté the prosciutto and red pepper flakes for about 6-8 minutes, or until the pieces are nice and crispy.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta until al dente.
  3. Reserve ¼ cup of the cooking water (in case you need to loosen the sauce), and drain the pasta.
  4. Add the diced apple, mascarpone, butter, and cream to the pan, and toss with the cooked noodles.  
  5. Add a little bit of the cooking water if necessary, and season as desired (although the prosciutto is quite salty so it shouldn’t need much).
