  3. Add shrimp and spices to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Add peas and prosciutto and continue to cook for another 4 to 5 minutes until the prosciutto starts to brown.
  4. Stir in the cream and cheese. Turn heat to medium-low and cook until the mixture starts to thicken, about 20 minutes.
