Quick and Creamy Ham Fettuccini Recipe

Quick and Creamy Ham Fettuccini Recipe

This elegant and easy Creamy Ham Fettuccine is Angie Smith's own version of an old Italian favorite and has earned top honors with friends and family. “It’s my most requested dish," notes the Clarksville, Tennessee cook. "I really like the thicker texture of the sauce, which is great with any hearty pastas, such as whole wheat tortellini or penne—and I sometimes add peas for extra nutrition.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) fettuccine
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  • 1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
