Easy to make. Nice recipe to add into the repertoire. I increased the amounts here and there and made extra servings for leftovers.
Delish, and the seasoning is perfect! The ONLY thing I changed was to use 3/4 cup pasta water and 3/4 cup cream. This is going into my “Tried and Treasured” file on Pinterest! Thank you Elise!
This came out very soupy and the flavor was just ok, even with extra garlic added!
Good dish, but are three cloves of garlic really necessary for such a small dish? I don’t know how you could taste anything other than the garlic! I omitted it entirely and the dish was just fine. Take it easy on the garlic!
Somewhere in the world, perhaps even a few blocks away from you, a reader might make this and comment “more garlic!” But yes, ham is quite flavorful and can hold its own without an assist from garlic. Up to the individual cook. We’re glad you liked this and feel confident enough in the kitchen to tweak things your way–that’s the point, isn’t it? Thanks for reading and cooking with us, Fred!
Really enjoyed this. So easy.
Elise, your recipes are a class apart, and I love the stories that come with them. You may have more contributors, but it is your recipes that i look forward to the most.
Just Great! Thank You
My family, especially my two boys, love it. Quick, easy and delicious.
Tried this..made exact. Was not “creamy” more liquid sauce than anything…
Easy and delicious way to use up extra ham. My husband (who isn’t a huge fan of ham) loved it, too!
Perfect for using extra ham! I especially enjoy the flavor of the lemon zest coming through. Thanks :)
For the cream, should it be heavy whipping cream or something different? Thanks!
Heavy whipping cream is what I usually use.
Just finished making this recipe, and WOW is it delicious! Need to stop ‘testing’ or I’ll have to get the family take out!
I was skeptical, but this was very good. I had to leave out the lemon zest but it was tasty all the same. I’ll make this quick, easy dish again.
I had no cream but had some cream cheese, so I added it to the “sauce”. Turned out delicious!
This was so good!!! Love fast, easy and yummy meals! My 3 kids all loved it too!
Tried this last night, substituting green peas with edamame. So delish!!! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes, Elise!
This is comfort food at its finest. I have a feeling it will be a regular stand-by at our house!
Oh this is such a lovely dish, good at any time and can be easily halved or multiplied as numbers dictate.
I made this last night with left over ham. The only changes I made were to use noodles instead of fusili and the addition of some spaghetti squash to get in more veggies. It was delicious! I love delicious + easy!! I’m sure I will make this again.
