"My hubby loves loves loves this!!!!!!!!"

"We substituted Italian sausage for the ham and corn for the peas. We also added onion and green pepper to the mix. If we have frozen shrimp or scallops on hand, we use those as well. We have used different kinds of pasta to go with it and it always turns out great!"

"I love this recipe & have made it numerous times. When I make it, I usually substitute asparagus for the peas. Yum!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 21, 2011

"Used deli ham and added 4 cups shredded cabbage (cooked with the ham and spices). If I was to make again, which I probably won't, I would use 16 ounces of peas PLUS the 4 cups shredded cabbage. Definitely not enough veggies in this dish.

Also, not sure where all the oil was used, but I only used about 2 Tbsp in the whole recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2011

"Substituted peas with asparagus which I cut small to fit recipe. Also, used bowtie pasta which is the pasta the family prefers. Its OK, felt like it was lacking some zip though."
