A little inspiration from Palermo, Italy is what sets this penne above and beyond. That, and the combo of prosciutto AND chicken (aka ALL the meats!). Prepare yourself for this Italian feast: al dente penne, cream sauce, peas, crispy prosciutto, tender chicken, and sprinkles of all the best garnishes (we’re talking lemon zest, Parm, parsley, and chili flakes). No red-eye flight to Italy required!


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry produce. • Peel and mince or grate garlic. Pick parsley leaves from stems; roughly chop leaves. Zest and quarter lemon.


• Once water is boiling, add penne to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. • Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.


• Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto slices in a single layer; sear until browned and crispy, 2-3 minutes per side. TIP: If the prosciutto starts to crisp too quickly, reduce heat to medium. • Turn off heat; transfer prosciutto to a paper-towel-lined plate. Reserve oil in pan (you’ll use it to cook the chicken in the next step).


• Pat chicken* dry with paper towels and season all over with salt, pepper, and half the Fry Seasoning (all for 4 servings). • Heat pan with reserved oil over medium-high heat. (TIP: Add an additional drizzle of oil if needed). Add chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, 3-5 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer chicken to a cutting board to rest. Wipe out pan.


• Heat 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) in pan used for chicken over medium-high heat. • Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Add cream sauce base, cream cheese, a big pinch of salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring, 2-3 minutes more. • Add drained penne and peas. Cook, stirring, until peas are warmed through and sauce has slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes more. TIP: If needed, stir in reserved pasta cooking water a splash at a time until pasta is coated in a creamy sauce. • Stir in half the parsley, a big squeeze of lemon juice, and a pinch of chili flakes if desired.


• Slice chicken crosswise. • Divide pasta between bowls. Top with chicken. Crumble prosciutto over top. (TIP: Or crumble half the prosciutto and top the pasta with the remaining larger pieces.) Sprinkle with lemon zest, Parmesan, remaining parsley, and a pinch of chili flakes to taste. Serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.
