This dinner is a three pot dinner. Pot number one: cook the pasta per directions. The agnolotti called for 4-6 minutes gentle boiling. Try to do this towards the end so everything finishes at the same time.

Whisk this and cook the flour on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Then, add the milk and cream, continuing the cook (and whisk to break any lumps) for another five minutes.
Meanwhile, in pot number three, saut?© the vegetables. Begin by finely mincing the shallot and garlic. Chop off the woody bottom parts on the asparagus, coarsely chop the prosciutto, and get the peas. Saut?© the shallots in butter for ~5 minutes before adding the garlic and cooking for a minute further. Once the shallot and
Melt down some more butter if your pan is dry and now begin to saut?© the asparagus for 5 minutes. Add the peas and prosciutto for 2 minutes further and then remove this from heat.
By now, you should be just about done cooking everything. Remove the sauce pot from heat and add the goat cheese into the cream sauce along with the oregano, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk until the cheese melts down and is totally incorporated into the sauce.
Finally, everything is done. Plate the agnolotti, strew on some of the saut?©ed vegetables and prosciutto, and top with a good bit of the cream sauce. Enjoy!
