I've been looking for a homemade version of the parma rosa pasta sauce (pkg) that I make with ham & pasta... although I made a few changes, this is the one that helped me find the duplication. I sub'd yogurt for the cream & added 1 cup of tomato sauce along with 2 Tbsp tom paste. Due to the added sauce I up'd the ham, pasta, broccoli & tomato abit. I may try peas for the broccoli next time. Flavour was bang on, thanks so much for sharing.
