Asparagus and Prosciutto Pasta

Tonight I was craving asparagus and prosciutto, so I started digging up recipes and I just so happen to come across a pasta dish - pasta just so happens to be one of my favorite things on earth, so I happily chose this recipe. It hit the spot more than I thought it would, when you read off the ingredients it doesn't totally make you drool, but give it a try - it's good, I promise!!

1 lb. pasta - I used a little less, which caused mine to be a little heavy on the sauce.
1 lb. asparagus
olive oil
1/4 lb diced prosciutto
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup white wine
3 egg yolks beaten
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons thyme - fresh is best for this dish
Parmigiano-reggiano cheese for sprinkling

Start cooking the pasta in one pot, making sure that the water is good and salty. In a skillet add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook the prosciutto for a couple of minutes. Then add the garlic and wine and reduce for a couple of minutes on low. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water before straining. Beat the egg yolks in a bowl, and add the reserved pasta water. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients, and toss until the sauce thickens slightly, and enjoy!
