    AHoff08's Note:

    I had this dish at a restaurant and my husband insisted that I figure out how to make it, so here is my rendition. My husband says it tastes the same and it is his favorite dinner that I make. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

      I loved this recipe. I used left over sweet ham I had made for a dinner and we could not get enough of this. No left overs what so ever! It took me a little longer for prep time with cutting up the ham and prepping the bacon and everything but well worth it.

      Very much enjoyed this rich pasta dish, really nice for a dinner at home, definitely good enough to serve to guests! Easily prepared with a minimum of fuss, I used cream instead of half and half, but otherwise, as recipe. The flavours combine well, the asparagus gives a nice freshness, really, you can't improve on this recipe. Thank you, AHoff, lovely recipe, made for Bargain Basement tag game.
