Ingredients assembled see this an easy to make sauce that is absolutely delicious. Other than not having prosciutto and subbing with regular ham I made as posted. Served with a green salad topped with a Luvcooken's Basic Vinaigrette made for a great tasting evening meal with containers added to my freezer stash for days I need a meal in a hurry.
