  1. In a large skillet, melt 1 tbsp butter over medium heat and saute onion, mushrooms, bell pepper and ham for 5 minutes, or until onion has softened, stirring occasionally.

  3. Cut cooked spaghetti into 2-inch lengths and stir into egg mixture.

  8. Garnish with remaining parsley and serve, cut in wedges; just as good warm as hot.

Definitely great! I tried it 'cause I was short on ideas for dinner one night. It works really well if you sub tomatoes for both the mushrooms and the pepper. And I also used oregano for the parsley. It's fantastic. It's one of those recipes that you don't hafta follow it too close. I'm making it right now. =^^=

Very easy and tasty. I did not have any fresh parsley so I added a pinch of dried oregano. Also, subbed real bacon bits for ham. Will definitely make again!
