"This is one of our favorite pasta dishes. I use honey ham from the deli and it really gives the dish good flavor. For reheating leftovers, add a little extra cream and simmer over medium low heat on stove." — SWEET-UMZ

1 (8 ounce) package
onion, finely chopped
sliced fresh mushrooms
1 1/2 cups
cooked ham, julienned
fresh basil leaves, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
I had to make quite a few modifications to accomodate what I hand on hand, but this turned out pretty well. I used spaghetti instead of linguine, canned mushrooms instead of fresh, and 2 cups of low-fat milk in place of the whipping cream. I thickened the sauce with corn starch, which worked just fine. I also used dried basil and used quite a bit of black pepper in the sauce. Tasty and very fast to get on the table.
way too much onion! But kind of bland--I added several good shakes of Parmesan, which helped. I don't think we'll make again
My family really enjoyed this. An interesting variation is to add a cup of green peas; I also have added a quarter-cup of grated dry cheese (parmesan, romano, dry jack) to the sauce or on top. I recommend 1T butter and 1T olive oil for sauteeing the onion, garlic and shrooms.
Very good. I did add 1 cup peas and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese as previously suggested. It was a little dry. So next time I would increase the whipping cream to 2 cups and/or decrease the amount of cheese.
We loved this recipe. Not as heavy as alfredo sauce, but has great garlic and mushroom flavor. I even found the recipe "Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce" on allrecipe.com which had the same base recipe as this sauce - and we ended up trying 2 sauces for one meal. This is a keeper.
this is one of the best recipe for me. i have tried with rosemary instead of the basil and it was great. i also added one cube vegetable stock instead of the salt and God it added a flavor. parmesan cheese with it is lovely as well
This is so good, I will make this again soon. I added parm cheese to the sause and that thicken it up perfectly. I used a little minced onion its what I had on hand.
My kids all liked this which was a miricle. I made this lower fat by substituing skim milk for the whipping cream. I thickened the sauce with 2 tsp of cornstarch mixed with 2 tbsp of milk.
