- 3 tablespoons butter or olive oil, or a mixture
- 4 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 1-ounce prosciutto, chopped

- ½ pound bow-tie pasta
- Heat a large pot of salted water for the pasta.
- When the water has come to a boil, add the pasta, and cook about 7 minutes, until al dente.
- Mash the garlic with a pinch of salt to form a paste. Mix with the butter or oil.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of the garlic butter or oil in a large, heavy skillet. Add the mushrooms, and sauté over medium heat for a few minutes, until the mushrooms have wilted. Stir in the prosciutto, cook another few seconds, then remove from the heat.
