- Add the canned peeled tomatoes to a blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.
- Put a large saute pan over a medium flame and heat the oil. Add the shallots to the pan and saute until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add in the prosciutto and saute until slightly crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the pureed tomatoes and peas to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream. Taste for seasoning and season with salt and pepper as desired. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
- Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Drop in the capellini and cook until very al dente. Capellini tend to cook quickly so keep an eye on them!
- Drain the pasta and add to the saute pan. Toss the pasta in the sauce for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Serve in warm bowls.
