Reviews for Quick and Creamy Ham Fettuccini
"I've been making this recipe for a few years now since it was published in S&D. It is a great go-to family friendly recipe for us. Our family likes broccoli and ham so it's a keeper. I use bow-tie pasta instead and I like the way the bow-ties hold onto the sauce. Excellent!"
"This dish is really yummy! The alfredo sauce beats any store bought version and it doesn't take too many ingredients."
