Garlic, Herb and Smoked Ham Tagliatelle (Ww Recipe)

"We have had this a couple of times over the years when I have been off and on Weight Watchers. It is a nice way of having a bit of a cream pasta meal without having to worry much about the fat grams. I got it from a WW cookbook put out by the UK version of WW a number of years ago. The recipe claims to be 11 points for the whole recipe but I know that UK points and USA points are worked out differently."

I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it. These are banners and buttons from Zaar events in which I have participated: <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="I am alw">
