Method

  1. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add prosciutto. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until golden. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel. Allow to cool. Break into pieces. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in pan. Add garlic, zucchini and onions. Cook, stirring, for 8 to 10 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Remove from heat. Set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks, cream and parmesan in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Place peas in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high (100%) for 2 minutes or until just tender.

  4. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water, following packet directions, until tender. Drain. Return to pan over medium-low heat. Add egg mixture and toss to coat pasta. Add zucchini mixture, peas and prosciutto. Toss until combined and heated through. Serve.
