Prosciutto and Edamame Pasta with Lemon Glaze

Perfect for Spring! Prosciutto and Edamame Pasta with Lemon GlazeI’ve been on a bit of a lemon kick lately. Meyer lemons, that is. For the longest time I would read recipes and blog posts of friends flaunting their use of Meyer lemons, yet I couldn’t get my hands on them.  I searched every grocer and farmer’s market in town with no luck. I dreamed to cook with these mysterious lemons that everyone else seemed to have in great bounty.

Meyer lemons are the epitome of what lemons should be. I have to believe, that when a little lemon hanging on a tree discovers it ISN’T a Meyer, it’s a dark day in the orchard. Meyer lemons have a delicate floral quality, a vibrant tender peel, and less of a bite than regular lemons. That means you can use as much as you want, without fear of ruining your dish. They are lovely little things.

So you can imagine why I was in total dismay to not be able to buy them.

Then one day it happened. There they sat in my neighborhood grocery store, piles and piles of radiant Meyer lemons. I grabbed them up in armfuls, like a desert wanderer who stumbles into a fresh oasis.  Then I gazed around looking for someone to thank. Walking up to the nearest grocery clerk, I said with great conviction, “Thank you for the Meyer lemons! You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to get them!!!” And do you know what he said to me? “Ma’am, we always carry them, but the local restaurant owners come in at the crack of dawn and clean us out.”

Swears to the restauranteurs! Don’t they realize we home cooks need Meyer lemons too?!? I actually have great fondness for restaurant owners, and I realize the early bird gets the worm and all, but couldn’t they leave a couple? At least now I know, I can get my share of Meyer lemons if I camp outside the grocery store overnight.

So finally I have them. Piles of them. And I’ll be serving you dishes with Meyer lemons possibly ’til the end of time. If you can’t find Meyer Lemons (either) do not dismay, substitute regular lemons or set your alarm clock REALLY early!

Prosciutto and Edamame Pasta with Lemon Glaze: This spring time pasta is a far cry from heavy winter pasta dishes. The sauce is more of a light glaze, simply kissing the pasta, rather than drowning it. The addition of prosciutto, cantaloupe, and edamame provide wondrous contrast in flavor and texture. Plus, this dish is fabulous served at any temperature! It’s fantastic to pack in a picnic basket or serve at an outdoor dinner party.

To Prepare:

Cook the pasta as directed on the package. Add the edamame in the last minute. Then drained and set aside.

    This is my first time reading your blog and I LOVE your writing style. This dish looks lovely, too! My favorite pasta dish — a go-to on a weekday night — includes orechiette pasta, arugula, lemons and good-quality canned tuna, plus a sprinkle of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. I’ll have to try it with Meyer lemons — if I can find them!

    This looks so delicious and the recipe includes many of my favorites! My favorite pasta dish is a home made comfort food, macaroni and cheese with ham. The best part is that you can play with the recipe using different cheeses. There’s nothing like the sight of bubbly melted cheese!

    That looks wonderful. I want to run right out and get all the ingredients to make this for lunch. Beautiful photos! My favorite pasta is a spring campanella pasta, salami and peas and parmesan. I might add Meyer lemon next time. BTW Queen Creek Olive Mill here in Arizona has a meyer lemon olive oil that is amazing.

    I think meyer lemons are a seasonal thing.

    On the pasta thing I love lasagna. They are nice and filling and there are so many fun versions to do: Bechamel or Ricotta and then so many veggies it’s fun.

    This looks heavenly! And I cracked up at this: “I have to believe, that when a little lemon hanging on a tree discovers it ISN’T a Meyer, it’s a dark day in the orchard.”

    I’m printing this out and praying that my local grocer doesn’t run out of Meyers before I get my greedy little hands on them….

My favorite pasta dish would have to be spagetti and meatballs. I don’t even like ground beef but sure love meatballs. Turkey meatballs are perfect. Thanks for the opportunity on the giveway. The pasta looks wonderful.

    I love the lemon in this dish! I too am on a bit of a lemon obsession, you just can’t go wrong and it is so bright and sunny, very spring! And the cantaloupe, nicely done!
    Our favorite pasta dish is simple, any sort of shape topped with our favorite pesto!

    Fresh and Foodie — March 31, 2011 @ 12:06 pm

    Ohhh, yes. I love prosciutto and melon, but never thought to mix it with pasta! Brilliant!

    I love simple pasta. Pasta pepito — fresh angel hair with tons of parmesan, fresh black pepper and a smidge of pasta water — is probably my favorite. Can’t go wrong there.

    Love that pasta shape! I bet it would make good mac & cheese as it probably would hold the sauce really well! I guess mac & cheese might be my favorite pasta dish, though I am always ready to eat a hearty bowl of spaghetti and meat balls.

    Fabulous pasta salad and I am so happy you got your hands on the Meyers and are now having your way with them;-). They are a popular citrus tree grown in a lot of yards here so we are spoiled. I love slices in my ice tea and water, they add a nice flavor, and don’t forget in salad dressings too;-)

    Steve @ HPD — March 31, 2011 @ 4:07 pm

    Thinking about it a bit harder … when i lived in Korea, you could get this super spicy pasta dish on the street in just about any urban center. Long before Roy Choi was doing his Korean tacos in trucks, Koreans had mastered the art of the sidewalk meal.

    Anyway, it was basically big fat macaroni noodles soaking in some sort of Sriracha sauce, although this was about ten years before Sriracha had become a brand. And it was served in a plastic bag, which you ate from as you walked away using chop sticks.

    Always hit the spot.

    Laura — March 31, 2011 @ 4:13 pm

    I love lemony pasta dishes and this sounds amazing with the meyer lemons, cantaloupe and prociutto. It’s hard for me to choose my favorite pasta dish, but I imagine in the winter it is a special spaghetti and meatballs and in the summer a light olive oil and pecorino dish – or something fresh tasting just like this!

    Hi sweet lady. What a great dish to celebrate Spring. I fell in love with Meyer lemons this year (and was mailed a box from a sweet friend in California). Thank you for sharing your inspired dish with me tonight. I’m in the need of some comfort…and you are one of the blogs I know I can turn to. I hope you have a great start to your week. Blessings and love.

    Ha! Now I know – I have to get to the grocery store at the crack of dawn. This dish has such a wonderful combination of flavors.

    Gorgeous pictures.

    I love a light pasta with lemon, red pepper, shrimp and white wine with fresh shaved parm and cracked black pepper and basil!

    This sounds amazingly good. I have some pasta I have been trying to think of ways to use besides the traditional pasta sauce route, but I can never think of anything! I will def. have to try this out! :)

    I have been loving meyer lemons lately too, but haven’t worked them into a pasta dish yet. This looks delicious! I like pasta simple…my favorite would have to be roasted veggies and pasta tossed with olive oil and parmesan cheese. It’s probably a weekly meal at my house :)

    MMMMMMMMMMM…;Divine food! :)

    Yum! I’m totally going to make this sans the proscuitto, though I know that will take some flavor away. I’ll figure out an appropriate substitute. Oh, and I love meyer lemons too, Sommer. They are so juicy and wonderful. I even sprouted a seed from one that I bought at Whole Foods. It’s growing in a pot on my patio now (smile)…

    so if i’m using a pkg of frozen edamame, would i defrost it first or give it 2 minutes with the pasta?



    • Sommer — April 21st, 2011 @ 10:58 am

      Hi Carol,

      I just throw it in frozen and it takes a minute or two to thaw. But you could leave it in up to 5 minutes if your pasta needs the extra time.

    Sommer, I just found your blog tonight but I’m loving it. This recipe looks great! So unique! I read the ingredients to my husband and he wants to try it, too. I wonder if cantaloupe is on sale this week… :)
