Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked fusilli (corkscrew) pasta (6 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (3 cups)
  • 6 medium green onions, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 package (3 oz) thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into thin strips*
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese (1 oz)

Steps

    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.

    Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Cook mushrooms, onions, bell pepper and garlic in oil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.
  • 3
    Stir in prosciutto, basil, oregano and salt. Stir in pasta and remaining 1 tablespoon oil; toss. Sprinkle each serving with cheese.

  • Like Parmesan, Asiago cheese is a firm, aged grating or shredding cheese. Look for wedges or containers of shredded Asiago in the grocery store deli or cheese department.
  • *Half of a 6-oz package thinly sliced fully cooked ham may be substituted for the prosciutto.
