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.


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 


  •  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.
