  • 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.
  • Stir in the cream and cheese. Turn heat to medium-low and cook until the mixture starts to thicken, about 20 minutes.
  • Add cooked pasta and pasta water to pan and stir well. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the pasta is coated in the shrimp sauce. Enjoy!
