Incredibly easy and quick! I used fusilli pasta, ham steaks from Costco and added fresh, minced garlic when sauteing the onions. I left out the nutmeg per personal preference. We loved that the broccoli was still crisp and not turned to mush. Served it with a spinach salad and some garlic bread. Thanks for sharing, breezer. Wonderful recipe! ***Made for Spring PAC 2013***

This is a excellent recipe!! My daughter just loved it so much that she wanted me to make again so she could watch me, The only adjustment that I made was to add fresh garlic to the onions for about 15 seconds before adding the heavy cream.

I have been thinking all morning about how to rate this recipe -- I have had several things come to mind: 10+ stars, you know that Food Network show, Best Meal I Ever Ate?, the words divine, delicious and delectable don't begin to describe this. Ok, enough raving! I made as stated -- subbing peas for broccoli and 1% milk for the whipping cream. This was perfection in every warm and creamy amazing bite. Thanks for posting! This will become a regular in our household as both DH and I ate and ate until we could not eat anymore! Then we both snuck in a few more bites while cleaning up ;) [Made for Holiday Tag December 2009!]
