MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 19, 2013

"I sauteed red, yellow, orange peppers and onions before the ham, used about half the pasta and used a cup of skim milk with a tbsp. of corn starch since I was out of heavy whipping cream. Even my husband, who isn't a fan of most pasta dishes, raved about it. Delicious!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2012

"Really quick and easy meal. My picky kids even thought it was delicious. I didn't have the parmesan, so I used feta instead and it was really good. I would take the advice of other reviewers and cut down on the amount of pasta and peas, probably down to 3/4 lb. for the noodles and 2 cups of peas. Other than that, we really enjoyed it. It's a keeper!"

"This a great recipe to use if you're short on time. Really easy! I would recommend only using 8 oz. of pasta- 1 lb. is a lot. Also, try cutting down the peas to 2 cups."
