Wonderful, easy recipe...I used leftover ham from the holidays instead of proscuitto and it was fabulous, I did add a little garlic but that is the only change I did....

I used penne pasta both times i made this dish, and it worked fine. The first time i used cream, as the recipe says, and the second time i used 1% milk. Didn't turn out as well with the milk, but was still good -- just not the thick, yummy sauce that only cream will give you.

I would truly give this more than 5 stars if I could! This was a breeze to throw together, but was absolutely delicious! The gentle flavors meld together to produce a wonderful, savory, elegant dish that I would definitely serve to company. I followed everything exactly as you stated except that I probably used a tiny bit more parmesan cheese than 1/4 cup. :) Divinemom5, thanks so much for this recipe. We loved it!
