Ham and Vegetable Linguine Recipe

Ham and Vegetable Linguine Recipe

I've been pleasing dinner guests with this delicious pasta dish that was based on one I found in a favorite Italian cookbook. The delicate cream sauce blends well with the colorful and hearty mix of vegetables. I chop the vegetables ahead and later prepare this dish in a snap.—Kerry Kerr McAvoy, Rockford, Michigan
