Tasty Tuesdays: Tagliatelle with Prosciutto & Orange

.
Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
.
Last week on my lunch hour a I stopped by a local bookstore and picked up a copy of Bon Appetit.  The front cover said it was their Italy issue so I couldn't resist.  Everything in the issue looks delicious but the one I tackled first is an unusual combination of ingredients.  Bon Appetit's description of the recipe:  "Two seemingly disparate ingredients pair perfectly in this brightly flavored and creamy sauce."  I'm sure this recipe isn't for everyone, but the flavors were so interesting and tasted delicious together.

.
Ingredients:
- 12 oz. egg tagliatelle or fettuccine
- 2 Tbsp. (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
- 2 oz. thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into 1" pieces
- Zest and juice of 1 orange
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
.
.
1.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season with salt; add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until 1 minute before al dente.  Drain, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water.
.
2.  Meanwhile, melt butter in a large heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto; sauté until browned, about 3 minutes.
.
3.  Add reserved pasta water, orange juice, half of zest, and cream; bring to a boil. Add pasta; cook, stirring, until sauce coats pasta and pasta is al dente, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in cheese and divide among warm bowls.  Top with additional cheese, if desired.

Your pasta looks so good. I will definitly try this dish. By the way, I made your pork barbecue from last week and it's incredibly good. I actually cooked in in the crock pot (not the oven) and it was great.
Best,
Susan

Hi Alissa! Your pasta sounds like a fun combination of flavors! Hmm- I just got an inspiration for a totally different dish using those flavors! (thanks!)
I shared my recipe for Cinnamon Tea Cookies today. This recipe is gluten free, but it can be made with "regular" flour if you don't have issues with gluten.
Thanks for hosting!

Just checked out your photography link. While I use a Canon, I found your lens info to be very interesting. The 35mm looks great. I imagine this is what you use for all of your food shots which are always so lovely.

I LOVE adding citrus and citrus zest to various dishes. That bright flavor really add zing. I've never thought about prosciutto and orange though. That'll have to be my next combo to try!

Happy weekend! Don't forget to come over and share a recipe at Savory Sunday!!

I too can not resist a good Italian cookbook or magazine. The unusual flavors sound wonderful to me. I never would have thought of adding orange but now I can totally imagine how good it would be with prosciutto.
