  1. This was terrific! I did as others had suggested and added diced onions and garlic to the ham. I would guess about three tablespoons of onion and one heaping teaspoon of garlic. The ham onion and garlic together reached the two cup line in my measuring cup before I heated them all together. I also - Read more ...
  2. A very good recipe. A good sub for the very cream is evaporated milk which will make all alfredo recipes less costly and healthier without any sacrifice in taste.
  3. Simply awesome. And I mean that literally. This is an extremely SIMPLE recipe--unbelievably easy to prepare--with an awesome flavor, far better than I expected. The sauce reminds me of the Sicilian sauce at Valentino's, a popular midwest restaurant, which originated in Lincoln, Nebraska. I used freshly grated Parmesan, which is the only way to go. - Read more ...
  4. I tried this because of all the great reviews. Sorry but I didn't like this at all. Fettuccine alfredo goes much much better with chicken than ham. I used leftovers from a delicious spiral ham I had made... wish I just would have heated up the ham instead. I won't make this one again but - Read more ...
  5. Excellent recipe. I tried it as is, and then tried it substituting Sour Cream for heavy cream, and liked that even better. I also added peas and fres muchrooms. Very yummy!
  6. Pretty good - nice way to use up ham. The cream scared me so I subbed in a can of chicken broth and some 2% milk. Used quite a bit of minced garlic some red pepper flakes and threw in some frozen green peas.
  7. I worked at an Italian Kitchen quite a few years ago and every Sunday the owner's wife would make a dish just like this one. She had a little drizzled eggs in hers which I also added when I made it...needless to say this recipe was TO DIE FOR!
  8. This is an outstanding fettuccine! I sauteed equal parts ham and onions with butter and garlic and added both to the noodles and sauce. It has a very rich flavor and reheats well. YUM!
  9. Excellent! Added diced canned mushrooms with ham and a touch of minced garlic. Absolutely Fabulous!! First time I've ever made resteraunt quality pasta in my own home!
  10. what a wonderful recipe! I added some garlic with the ham and butter and I think I put too much pasta in. I used a whole box and it was a little too dry but next time it will be perfect with only 3/4 box of fettucine.
