sliced ham, diced
grated Parmesan cheese
eggs, lightly beaten
sliced black olives
salt to taste
This is good but much better with ham frozen green peas cream parmesan cheese and garlic. Also a great substitute for the ham is sliced sweet or hot Italian sausage.
This recipe had a lot of potential, but I have a few problems with it. One, echoing a previous reviewer's comments about the "essentially raw eggs", the recipe didn't specify how long the eggs actually cooked. For another, the recipe seemed to have too much ham in it (and I do like ham). Third, the whole thing was too salty for my taste, so people may want to use unsalted butter, not salt the spaghetti, etc.
I'll probably make this again, with a few minor changes.
I actually cooked the eggs, as the recipe says to do (on low heat so they stay soft, but are still COOKED), and the results were wonderful! Great recipe!
A great change of pace and a good way to use up left over ham.
There was only enough left for my husband to take for lunch the next day!
Delicious and great flavors of garlic and
cheese with ham and spaghetti . I did add peas and a mixture of parmesan and Romano cheese and cilantro(instead of parsley). I will make this again!!
Yummy and quick! What more do you want??? I don't like olive so I put in a handful of sun dried tomatoes and it was great. Fab dish to do when you've had along day and want something tasty and fast on the table in less than 15 minutes. Thanks for this one. Will definitely be a regular in my house.
I made this only because I wanted an easy and quick lunch recipe for my family. I'll be honest, I don't get what the eggs do to this dish but the results were good. I personally don't think this dish is "special occasion quality" as the result is just a fancier version of buttered noodles and it certainly isn't very "Italian" but we liked it well enough. I used rotini noodles, 1/2 TBLS dried parsley and used a jar of diced pimentos in place of the olives. I'd make this again when in a time crunch.
I used penne instead of spagetti and I loved it. I also used pre-chopped ham which made the whole cook time about 15 min. Perfect!
