Capellini D’Angelo Roma

It is that time of year when I get home from work and all I want to do is throw something in a pot and wait for it to turn into a delicious dinner.  The drizzly chilly rain we have had lately in Nashville has only intensified this need. 

What could satisfy this craving more than the sweet aroma of tomatoes, onions, garlic and prosciutto topped with cheese and tossed with heavy cream?  Oh, well if you throw it over pasta that might help!

I recently started following Chef Dennis' blog, A Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis, and this was the first (of many more to come) recipes that I tried.  I will be a true follower of his from now on as this was delicious! It did not take long to throw together and tasted like it came from the roots of Italy!  My type of meal!
