  • Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Lay the slices of prosciutto on a baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes or until the prosciutto slices are crispy. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter and brown the shallot. Add the green peas, and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add the white wine. Let the mixture reduce by half. Add the chicken stock and fresh thyme. Continue cooking for about 10 minutes.
  • Blend the mixture into a smooth purée. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan. Add the cream and half of the L'Ange Gardien. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until the cheese melts, and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Before serving, top the soup with prosciutto chips and the rest of the L'Ange Gardien.
