"Very tasty, albeit an odd combination. I think we must have used too much ham, as there was not enough room in the pan for the mushrooms. It was very good, however."

"Love this recipe! Didn't think the combination of cream and spaghetti sauce would be good, but it is excellent! One of the few recipes everyone in my family will eat - even my picky eaters."
