Spaghetti with Vodka Sauce & Proscuitto

This is a quick and easy dinner that leaves you feeling “full” but not heavy!  You can also use any type of pasta you would like and substitute the type of meat.

Ingredients:

12oz whole wheat pasta
2oz prosciutto finely diced
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup vodka
28oz can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup half-and-half
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 cup chopped basil
Freshly ground pepper to taste 

Preparation:

  •  Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Cook pasta until just tender.
  • Meanwhile, cook prosciutto in a large saucepan over medium heat until crisp, about 4  minutes. Drain on a paper towel.
  • Return the saucepan to medium-low heat; add onion and garlic, cook until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes.  Stir in tomatoes, half-and-half, Worcestershire sauce and crushed red pepper to taste; reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain pasta; serve topped with the sauce and sprinkled with the prosciutto, basil, and pepper.
