I used the cream sauce recipe for 16 oz. of the linguine and doubled the ham. Also used ~cbw~'s milk/oil tip. This was so good and so cheap!

This was super quick and easy. However it gave the feeling of a more complicated dish. I found the need to add salt and pepper, but otherwise I left it alone.

I liked this -- kind of reminiscent of carbonara only not as rich and an easier dish to make. My 16 year old was crazy about it, my husband thought it too bland. A 4 rating reflects the concensus of opinions. Nice dish.
