  1. Quick to fix and yummy! Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  2. I was very excited to make this because I like all the ingredients. However, I did not like the taste of this dish. The thyme and the hot feta just didn't taste good to me. It didn't look very good either with the clumps of stuff in it. Just not for us, I guess.
  3. Great recipe I used for some leftover ham that had been in the freezer a while! We don't like tomatoes, so left that out. Didn't add salt b/c of the feta and forgot the pepper! Half recipe made TONS (at least 6-7 servings). I didn't really measure the cheeses, but added a lot in! Substituted skim milk as that's all we ever really have in the house! Added more than called for b/c I was afraid it would be dry (it wasn't). Added extra clove of garlic (next time will add several more) and also some garlic powder and italian seasoning as I was worried that it might be a little bland, but it wasn't. Delicious pasta! Thanks so much for the recipe!! Quite tasty!
  4. 10 Stars !DH did the shopping for this recipe and not knowing what Half and Half was, skipped that ingredient, and looked blankly at me when I asked if he had bought cream (we have milk on hand for the children) Therefore I made it with only milk, and DH, the Pasta Master, liked the result very much. With metric packaging I probably had a bit more cheese than required, and other than mixing several pastas together because I didn’t have enough of each for a full dish, I made the recipe as directed. Both DH and I have slight milk intolerance so are careful-ish with how much cream and milk we eat and usually I have Soya Cuisine on hand, but was out of it when I made this. In future I will substitute the soya cuisine for the cream and DH’s only suggestion was that we *could* cut the tomatoes and up the garlic. For the rest he had no negative comments at all, (Wow, minor miracle!) and he gave this the thumbs up. Please see my rating system, a wonderful 5 stars, and with DH as a critic you have surely earned them. Thanks Little Bee!
  5. This was a very good dish and my kids really enjoyed it. I used about 1/2 the amount of pasta leaving the ham & tomatoes the same, adjusting the 1/2 and 1/2 by just a bit since there was less noodles. It was easy to make and a great way to use up leftover ham. I really like the feta in it. My son packed the leftovers for his school lunch. This recipe will be made again!


I am happily married to my best friend and we just bought our first house! No kids but we have 2 little dogs that we think the world of. I was born in California and although I have been on the East Coast for most of my life I am still displaced! I love the beach and hate the cold! In our free time we love to go to the beach or the mountains and hike or intertube down the lazy Shenendoah River. It is so beautiful there! I have loved to cook all of my life and will read cookbooks like they are novels!
