Pea & Prosciutto Risotto

I have always thought that I should have been born in Italy. I adore pretty much all pasta and risotto. In fact, if Allen didn't complain I probably would eat one of the two EVERY night!  I was searching through the fridge to come up with something exciting for dinner and came up with this.  I always keep prosciutto, parmesan, shallots and, of course, champagne in my kitchen!  It is similar to a delicious tortellini dish one of my friends shared with me.  
2 tbsp olive oil
3 shallots, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup arborio rice
1/4 cup champagne or dry sparkling wine
1 cup fresh English peas
1 tbsp butter
4 tbsp heavy cream
4 tbsp grated parmesan, plus more in individual servings 
Salt & Pepper, to taste
5 oz prosciutto, chopped and cooked until crispy
