    Very tasty, albeit an odd combination. I think we must have used too much ham, as there was not enough room in the pan for the mushrooms. It was very good, however.

    This really easy and very tasty. I added some capers to this and it came out very good.

    Love this recipe! Didn't think the combination of cream and spaghetti sauce would be good, but it is excellent! One of the few recipes everyone in my family will eat - even my picky eaters.

    Great for leftover ham. I used milk (on hand) and continued simmering for a few minutes and it turned out fine. Very quick and very easy.

    This is a very different tasting recipe. My whole family loves it. You can adjust the spice level by the red pepper flakes. Everyone I know that has sampled some of this wants the recipe. Very God
