Pea and Prosciutto Mac & Cheese

Background

One of the easiest embellishment dishes… But as anyone who’s put a slice of cheese on a cracker knows, simplicity and flavor often go hand-in-hand! We love this one. It’s delicious – plus, it takes next to no time to prepare.

This is truly a great choice when you want something tasty and you want it now! Perfect for the chef on-the-go or as a unique side for an impromptu dinner.

Pea and Prosciutto mac and cheese

Cooking and Serving Tips

When purchasing prosciutto, look for an option that contains no nitrates or nitrites. If you’re having difficulty finding a good option, ask your deli attendant. Most options are typically stored near the artisan cheese (and if you’re lucky, they will have Flagship, too!).

Fresh peas can be hard to find – as they are in and out of season very quickly. If you’re able to find some, purchase them as close to cooking as possible. The longer fresh peas sit out, the less tender they become. Peas are best when their pods are a vibrant green and firm to the touch, so choose a bright, medium-sized pod with a firmer feel.

Serve & Store

Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy hot. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
