Bring broth and water to a boil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in peas, spinach and scallions. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min. Add cream cheese, mint and pepper. Cook 2 min., stirring frequently, or until cream cheese is melted and soup is heated through.

Puree soup, in batches, in blender until smooth. Ladle soup into serving bowls. Garnish each serving with a prosciutto half.
