1/2 450-g pkg
penne or rotini pasta
2 handfuls
sugar snap peas, about 200 g
small thin zucchini
garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp
olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
1 tbsp
4 slices
prosciutto, or ham
1 tsp
Dijon mustard
1/2 cup
freshly grated parmesan


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta following package directions until al dente, 7 to 9 min. Trim peas and add to pasta water for the last 2 min of cooking. Drain.
  • Meanwhile, slice unpeeled zucchini in half lengthwise, then into semicircles. Prepare garlic. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add zucchini, garlic and capers. Stir often until zucchini starts to soften and capers begin to pop, 3 to 4 min.
  • Slice prosciutto into thin strips. Add pasta to zucchini mixture. Dot with Dijon and toss to evenly coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Stir in prosciutto slices. Taste and add a pinch of salt or more capers, if needed. Serve in wide bowls.
