Creamy Olive, Prosciutto & Pea Orecchiette

By on May 7, 2018


The cooler weather makes cooking a little more cosier, and nothing says comfort quite like a creamy pasta dish. 

Servings: 2



  • 1/3 of a cup of Chris’ Homestyle Three Olive Dip
  • 180g of Orecchiette
  • 50g (4-5 slices) of good quality prosciutto, roughly chopped
  • ¾ of a cup of frozen peas
  • ¼ of a cup of cooking cream


  1. Cook the orecchiette in well salted water for 10-12 minutes until al dante (or as per packet instructions).
  2. Add the peas to the orecchiette 6 minutes into the cooking. 
  3. Meanwhile, bring a non-stick fry pan to a medium heat and cook the prosciutto pieces until crisp. 
  4. When the pasta is ready, drain and return to the pot on the lowest heat. 
  5. Add the Chris’ Three Olive Dip and cream. Stir on a low heat for 60-90 seconds are until the cream slightly thickens. 
  6. Serve immediately with the crisp prosciutto on top, and a side of crusty bread with extra Chris’ Three Olive Dip!
