Today's Special: Baked Pasta with Spinach, Ricotta, and Prosciutto

Some days you need a dish that requires little to no time in the kitchen. A baked pasta is an excellent option in these conditions. It's a meal that, with minimal chopping and stove top time, can be quickly thrown together and left in the oven. You can get dinner done and have time to hop in the shower while it bakes. Another wonderful weeknight advantage of a meal like this? You don't have to wash a whole bunch of pots, pans, and bowls. To take a peep at the recipe,

You can get lots of different kinds and qualities at a good deli/specialty store/cheese shop (they go hand in hand!), however I used to live by a Safeway that carried 2 different by-the-pound kinds and a pre-packaged kind as well. Ask the guy at your grocery store deli if he has any suggestions. Chances are if they don't, he might be able to tell you where to go!

This may seem like a stupid question but where can you buy prosciutto, do I need to go to a specialty store/deli?
