Reviews for Ham Fettuccine Bake
Sort By :
"I think what was missing was seasoning (salt & pepper). Even though ham is salty, if you either make it vegetarian (i made a veggie one for my daughter substituting mushrooms) or get a bite without ham, it lacked seasoning. I made sure to season (lightly) at each step (particularly added it to the bechamel- like sauce).Thanks for a great way to use leftover ham-- definitely a keeper!"
"Followed this recipe but did saute a little onion and fresh garlic for extra flavo. This was so dang yummy, and used my keftiver ham!"
"I was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover ham and came across this. I agree with the other reviews that said it was rather bland. I notice it did not call for any seasonings, but I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder...and it still seemed to be missing something. It was quick and easy. If I make it again, I may add a cream soup to it."
"This was okay. I might make it again, if I have leftover ham. But it didn't really wow us. I'm keeping it in my recipe box anyway!"
"This is an amazing recipe. My husband who seldom likes new recipes said this is a keeper. It also reheats well with a small amount of added milk."
