My husband rarely raves about a chicken dish, but he LOVED this one! My store didn't have spinach fettuccine so we used the vegetable version which was more orange than green. I'm going to keep looking though because I think the green would make a nice contrast. They were also out of leeks. (Well, they *thought* they had leeks, but it was fennel in the leeks section!) We used a little extra garlic and scallions instead. It was very easy to prepare and tasted amazing. When we read the recipe, we thought the ham was odd but it really added to the over all flavor. We'll definitely be making this again! Thanks, Kathy!
