1 tablespoon white truffle oil

1/4 cup grated piave cheese, or parmigiano reggiano

-In a large skillet, on medium high heat, add the butter and melt until it becomes foamy and begins to brown. Add the mushrooms and onions and cook until they begin to brown and become translucent, about five minutes.

-Add the cream and reduce by half. Add the peas and prosciutto and take off of heat.

-In a pot of boiling water, add your fresh pasta and cook 3-4 minutes. Drain and add to the cream sauce.
