    8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 small garlic clove -- minced
    2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto -- chopped

    1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain pasta in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.

    I made this dish tonight, it was really good, a nice change from the usual pasta with tomato sauce. I added a few shrimp before adding the spinach to the sauce, let them cook up, then followed the rest of the recipe as is. Even my 14 year old like it.
