PROSCIUTTO, CANTALOUPE AND ORECCHIETTE SALAD
Start to finish: 30 minutes; servings: 8

16 ounces orecchiette pasta
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1 fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
4 ounces prosciutto, cut into thin strips
1 cup diced cantaloupe
1/2 cup torn fresh basil leaves
Salt and ground black pepper
Shaved Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions.

Two minutes before the pasta is finished cooking, add the asparagus. When the pasta is finished, drain immediately and mix in several ice cubes. Stand the strainer of pasta and asparagus in the sink and run cool water over them until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and mustard. Add the cooked and cooled pasta and asparagus, the fennel, prosciutto, cantaloupe and basil. Gently stir to combine and distribute the dressing. Season with salt and pepper, then garnish with the Parmesan.

And I thought I was tired the other day! A 2 hour walk through the zoo, in 95 degree weather, is exhausting. But SO worth it.
