Reviews for Hay and Straw
"Very quick,easy & good with minimal ingredients. I used about 3/4 of the pasta called for & added a cube of frozen minced garlic while saut?ing the ham& peas. I also added about 1/2 tsp. of dried thyme. It was very good & filling."
"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!"
"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."
"I have been making this recipe since it came out in the Taste of Home Magazine in 2003. My family absolutely loves it! It is quick and delicious!"
"This is so easy, delicious and fun. It's awesome to make when you're in a pinch for time. Absolutely delicious."
"I made this tonight and it was wonderful! I only used 1/2 the peas and added spinach, onion, garlic, and a little more of the sauce! I will be making this again and again!"
"We make this dish every month... never get tired of it! It is one of my 16 year old son's favorite meals."
"My husband calls this a "bang up" dish. I don't know where he got the phrase, but it means something that's really, really good. I make this nearly every time I have leftover ham. My family eats every morsel."
