    2 cloves of chopped garlic added to the mushrooms would give a nice flavour. Also I would add 250g shaved, light ham to keep it low fat. Some cherry tomotoes would add some colour to this dish also. Now you have my recipie.

    This recipe is delicious! I added some garlic, as I have a hard time cooking without it. Warning: Do NOT omit the mushroom. I did, because my DH doesn't like them - and the flavor definitely suffered. I added them back in with the leftovers, and realized how necessary they are in the recipe.

    This recipe is great; I a recipe using ham and mushrooms; didn't have peas and subs with roasted red pepper; added garlic and served in on angel hair; it's a keeper; thanks.

    Super great recipe for leftover ham! I love that's it's low-cal. I used 2 cloves of garlic, and 10oz of mushrooms and pasta. Next time I'll add some sherry to the mushrooms. Note to future self: don't add salt until you taste because the ham is salty. Thanks for the keeper!

    I made this with leftover ham after Christmas. We had company over, and thank goodness I made 1.5 times the recipe. Everyone had seconds - even the kids! I think some might have even sneaked thirds. Everyone complimented the dish for its heartiness. This was a very tasty recipe, and one I'll make again. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

    This was a very good & very satisfying meal, especially considering this is a lowfat dish. I really enjoyed the combination of ingredients - the chicken broth really gave the sauce a nice flavor and the vegetables were very colorful. This was also very economical. I used leftover chunks of ham instead of the canned ham. Thanks for a delightful family dinner!


I am retired and living in central Florida. I am in the process of becoming a Master Chef (but have a long way to go!). Christmas has emphasized my pet peeve..i.e., waiting in lines.
