"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."

"Great for leftover ham. I used milk (on hand) and continued simmering for a few minutes and it turned out fine. Very quick and very easy."

"This is a very different tasting recipe. My whole family loves it. You can adjust the spice level by the red pepper flakes. Everyone I know that has sampled some of this wants the recipe. Very God"

"I tried this on the recommedation of another reviewer and I am so glad I did. It was really good. I used a basic garlic oregano tomato sauce which I had left over in the freezer. I used a one pound ham steak (cook's brand). I also left out the mushrooms (don't like them). I also cut back the herbs to a teaspoon of each. Otherwise I followed the recipe. Final dish although rich was very good. Decided to add a bag fresh spinach (cooked in microwave for 5 min) to leftovers to cut the richness a little. It was a fantasic combination and will definately add in next time I make it, also will try with half and half instead of heavy cream."
