Has anyone else read Why French Women Don’t Get Fat? It is a wonderful book, letting you experience life and eating through a French women’s perspective. Portion control, focusing on meals (not multitasking) and celebrating occasionally are just a few of the principals I remember.I read the book, then bought the cookbook and am still surprised at the new dishes I try. YUM. I love anything that is considered French food. This is a very simple recipe. Leeks, pasta, Parmesan, prosciutto and basil. Enjoy!
- 3?4 pound fettuccine or linguine
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound leeks, white parts only, sliced into 1-inch pieces
- 4 ounces Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 8 thin slices of prosciutto
- Cook the fettuccine in salted water according to package directions.
- Meanwhile, warm the oil in a skillet. Sauté the leeks over medium-high heat
- until translucent.
- When the pasta is ready, toss it with the leeks, add the cheese, and season with salt
- and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with the prosciutto as a garnish.
