  • 1 pound small pasta shells or elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen peas
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced ham or prosciutto, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped dill
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta shells until al dente. Drain and return to the pot and toss with 1 tsp of the olive oil to prevent sticking.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until golden, about 4 minutes. Add the peas and ham and cook until the peas are hot and the ham is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and stock and simmer over moderate heat until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Stir the cream sauce into the shells. Add the Parmesan and dill and season with salt and pepper. Serve in bowls.
