Creamy Ham Fettucini

I often prepare this dish as a fast and flavorful way to bring a "taste of Italy" to the dinner table. The creamy sauce dresses up ordinary ham and asparagus. —Anna Walker, Ashley, North Dakota

    A bit bland as is so I added some black pepper, paprika and a little sea salt. Still was missing something. Ill try cayanne next time.

    I was just recycling some left over ham when I found out we were having company for dinner. We are a family of 7 and company added another 5. I doubled this recipe and added a steaming platter of corn on the cob. I got compliments from everyone, even the children loved it.
