To keep things easy, cook the pasta and the asparagus in the same pot (just add the asparagus later). Meanwhile, sauté the prosciutto and mushrooms. Toss everything together with butter and Roth’s Private Reserve cheese for a quick and tasty dish!

I picked Roth’s Private Reserve because it’s aged at least 6 months and the flavor is nutty and complex. You want some flavor in your cheese for this dish because it’s taking the place of sauce.

Dinner is full of the fresh flavors of spring and it’s ready in 30 minutes or less!

    This was excellent, and very satisfying! I had no small pasta, so used spaghetti instead, and it worked fine. I did add garlic while frying the mushrooms. I also added chicken base (bouillon) instead of salt while boiling the pasta, which I always do for more flavor. I reserve some of the pasta water and added It to the dish in order to keep it from being to dry.
    My husband loved it!5 stars

    I use diced pancetta instead of the prosciutto, then when cooking the mushrooms, I use about half the olive oil and the pan drippings from the pancetta. Family loves this recipe (oh and I use Parmesan as I can’t find Roth’s near me)

    What kind of cheese is used? Is it a gouda? Mozzarella? Parmesan? I only see a name brand.  5 stars

      Hi Becki, sorry about that! This post was sponsored by Roth Cheese so I listed only their brand name. And the Grand Cru isn’t any particular kind of cheese such as mozzarella or gouda. However, I’ve eaten it in spades and I can confidently say it most closely resembles Parmesan. I’ll add that to the recipe notes. Great question! Thank you! -Meggan
