"This is a good recipe for a base but I definitely had to make some's how I made it and it was delicious: I used the amount of pasta and ham called for but doubled the vegetables and substituted peas for the corn. I shredded a combination of asiago, romano and parmesan to equal about 2 cups of cheese total. I also doubled the amount of sauce ingredients and added pepper and paprika but because the sauce never "thickened", I added the cheese to the sauce, making sure it was on a low setting, so as not to scorch. The rest was per the recipe. I gave it 4 stars because it was delicious but I felt like the recipe contents needed some serious doctoring!"

"I've made this dish several times. I love the flavor, but the sauce is a little wimpy, very thin. I usually put lots more zucchini and carrots than called for, and the combination of those with the ham and noodles is still a good dish in spite of the sauce."
