Bon Appetit Tagiatelle Prosciutto and Orange

My two boys love pasta; I can guarantee that it will almost always be eaten in our house with no complaints. Recently, I have been trying to make a larger variety of pasta dishes, instead of the same old red or alfredo sauces. The May issue of Bon Appetit had a full spread of Italian dishes, and the tagliatelle with prosciutto and orange caught my attention.

This is a great quick weeknight dinner. With only 8 ingredients, this recipe is beyond simple. The prep work is next to nothing; easily under 5 minutes. The one problem that I did encounter was finding fresh fettuccine in my area. I looked at three different grocery stores to no avail. I think it's the universes way of telling me to finally use the pasta attachment that I have for my KitchenAid. Next time I make this recipe I will make the fettuccine from scratch, instead of using dried pasta, which was the only type available. The other modification that I made was the prosciutto. The type of prosciutto available in my area was finely diced, not thinly sliced like the recipe suggested. However, my husband and I actually liked the texture and taste of the chopped prosciutto and I would made this modification again.

This recipe turned out great and was very simple to make. My two boys loved it and my husband liked the orange taste. One suggestion if anyone wants to use locally sourced (or leftover) country ham, it would be a great substitution. All-in-all a great recipe.
