Quick and Creamy Ham Fettuccini

 Quick and Creamy Ham Fettuccini
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.”
