Fresh Peas with Green Garlic & Prosciutto

fresh shell peas green garlic prosciutto

Migliorelli Farm joins the Woodstock Farm Festival this year. On opening day this past Wednesday they had a big bushel of fresh shell peas for sale and they also had bunches of green garlic. Here’s a recipe that uses both of them. It comes together pretty easily once the peas have been shelled.


  • 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Bulb Green Garlic – thinly sliced
  • 1 Slice Prosciutto – thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup of Shelled Fresh Peas
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Heat the olive oil and butter in a saute pan. Add the green garlic and prosciutto and cook until both are golden. Stir in the peas and add the water. Cook until the peas are tender but still bright green and the water has reduced to create a sauce, about 3-4 minutes. Add several grinds of fresh black pepper.
