Farfalle al Prosciutto Arugula Shrimp

4

This is a unique dish that I love to prepare for my friends and family in Ciociaria. It is a very light plate as the farfalle takes a light coating of the sauce. The flavor of the San Marzanos from Napoli and the perfume of the Modena Balsamic make for a refreshing pairing with the fresh ricotta.
