Description

Inspired by a meal I had at SPQR in San Francisco, this is a really unique dish: whole wheat pasta tossed with prosciutto, green onions and poppy seeds.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Whole Wheat Spaghetti Or Bucatini
  • ¼ pounds Prosciutto
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Cut On The Bias
  • 4 Tablespoons Poppy Seeds
  • 2 dashes Kosher Salt And Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Start a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil. While water is coming up to temperature, roughly chop the prosciutto into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Have your green onions and poppy seeds measured out and close at hand, as well, to assemble the dish. When the pasta is cooked al dente, reserve about 1/3 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the pasta.

In a large saute pan, add your chopped prosciutto and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the butter and allow to melt. Once melted, add in the pasta and reserved cooking liquid. Toss thoroughly together and then add in the green onions and poppy seeds. Continue to toss together on medium-low heat for a minute or two to heat it all through together. At this point, grab a bite and taste for salt and pepper then adjust accordingly. Serve immediately.
