I really like this recipe & my picky 7 year old loves it. I do double the sauce & ham amounts, & saute the garlic before adding the ham to the skillet. Last time I added fresh peas since we had them from our CSA box. I do wish 4 stars was not "worthy of a special occasion" or that half stars were possible. This is a great weeknight dinner, but I'm not sure I'd serve it at a dinner. Served with flax bread & salad.

A good recipe if you have leftover holiday ham. Otherwise, I greatly prefer a (turkey) bacon version. I added peas per earlier reviewers and would also recommend adding them.

This is my go-to recipe for leftover ham. It is simple and quick to put together (unless you make your own spaghetti :) ), and as other reviewers have mentioned it can be dressed up with peas, broccoli, etc. I usually cut back a bit on the amount of pasta, and most recently I used salt-cured ham (and was thus able to omit the salt in the recipe), and served it with Spring Pea and Bean Salad.

Needed more garlic.
