    I don't like ham, but this recipe makes it good. The flavors are simple but so complimentary

    I had leftover honey ham I wasn't sure was going to work with this recipe but decided to try it anyway. It was so good I made it 3 days in a row! I omitted the peas because I like my veggies separate but followed the recipe otherwise. This isn't a saucy pasta but with good Parmesan the flavor is exquisite.

    After reading all of the comments, I thought for sure I could count on this recipe. I made it for dinner tonight and was very disappointed that it was so dry. My husband had to have some canned cheese sauce poured over it. I won't be making it again.
