An easy One Pan Fettuccine with Prosciutto that is so flavorful and easy to make. Everything cooks in one large skillet, even the pasta! It’s a great easy dinner recipe to make and serve with a side salad.
The way this recipe is cooked is what makes it different than the rest. It’s all cooked in the same skillet. The pasta cooks perfectly al dente and the sauce simmers with the noddles and a little pasta water.
It’s very delicious and easy to make. One of our favorite pasta recipes and to make it even better, we’ve added Prosciutto which gives it even more flavor.
This sauce is an Alfredo sauce, but a little lighter in consistency. This recipe uses heavy cream, parmesan cheese and it’s seasoned it with salt and pepper. The perfect comfort food for any season.
How to Make Fettuccine Pasta in One Pan
Start with a large skillet and 2.5 cups water. Break 1 pound fettuccini in half to fit the skillet and boil the water, butter, olive oil and pasta together for about 10 minutes until the pasta becomes al dente (actually like 5 minutes before al dente, since it will continue to cook with the sauce) and there is just a little water remaining.
Then add in the heavy cream, egg yolks and season it with salt and pepper. Stir until thick and the sauce coats all the fettuccine pasta and becomes a little thicker. It’s absolutely delicious!
Added pieces of prosciutto to the sauce for even more flavor. You can purchase pre-sliced prosciutto and just tear off smaller pieces to add to the pasta.
The good thing about prosciutto is that it’s already cooked, so you can just add it in the skillet at the end right before serving.

What is the difference between fettuccine and linguine?
Fettuccine is a wider noodle than linguine. It’s also a flat noodle compared to linguine which is elliptical in shape. Fettuccine is better served with heavy sauces like Alfredo sauce.
