Prosciutto (Parma Ham) Pasta

This Parma ham pasta was made with parma ham (prosciutto) crisped up in the pan, along with cherry tomatoes, angel hair and leftover salad veggies. This is a super fast one-dish meal that takes about 15 minutes to make. After crisping a piece of raw parma ham in the pan as an experiment, I realised cooked Parma ham tasted similar to bacon (but minus the preservatives which is a bonus). So this was how this Parma ham pasta came about.
