- 12 oz (350 g) fettuccine
- 2 tbsp (25 mL) Butter
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 2 to 5 cloves garlic minced
- 1 lb (500 g) asparagus
- 2 cups (500 mL) 35% Cream or 18% Cream
- 2 tbsp (25 mL) cornstarch
- 4 oz (125 g) thinly sliced prosciutto
- Freshly ground black pepper
Cook fettuccine according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and cook onion and garlic until onion begins to brown.
Trim asparagus and cut diagonally into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Add to onions; cover and cook for 5 minutes or until asparagus are slightly cooked, stirring regularly.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup (50 ml) cream with cornstarch; set aside. Add remaining cream to asparagus mixture, scraping up any brown bits at the bottom of the pan. Add cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil, stirring continuously.
Once sauce begins to thicken, reduce heat to a simmer. Cut prosciutto crosswise into thin strips and stir into sauce; cover and continue to simmer 5 minutes. Sprinkle with black pepper and serve over fettuccine.
