i have never tried ham with pasta and i see recipes all the time. i tried this, it was fine. i think if i would have had a smokier-tasting ham it would have been 5 stars. maybe the leftover flavors will be married together better. i cut my broccoli in small pieces and microwaved for 2 min. didn't have any cream, used parmesan cheese and some of the pasta water. i cut the recipe in half and it still made a lot. maybe asparagus would be good in it? it's obvious that many love this dish!!!
Family loved it -- it is more like 8 servings and next time I would add extra ham and broccoli. The cream was just enough to coat the pasta without "soaking" it and I added the parmesan to the cream to melt it into the sauce. Will definitely make again.
Very quick and tasty. I didn't have heavy cream so I used 1 cup Half and Half, added cornstarch and some 1% milk and heated it through to thickened sauce. Also added shredded cheddar cheese for more zing.
My family loves this recipe and it continues to be a go-to for me. It's pretty simple and delicious! I use rice noodles and usually add arugula or spinach for an added veggie boost, but still tastes great. We love having the leftovers for lunch, too!
Yummy recipe. I too, like the first comment did not warm my cream and used the whole half-pint carton for the recipe. Worked just fine. My family loved it and I'll put this in my recipe book.
Yummy comfort food!! I don't pre-warm the cream and if I've bought a half-pint of cream, then I just dump the whole thing in to avoid having 1/4 cup of cream sitting in my fridge. Works just fine!
This recipe should make at least 8 servings, not 4. A single serving of pasta is 2 ounces, not 4 ounces like the recipe suggests. Once you double the number of servings, the calorie content is a much more reasonable 296 calories, 11.5g fat, 36g carbs, 13g protein
