This is a great pasta dish for leftover ham. When reheating add a little extra cream and simmer over medium low heat on stove.
I had to make quite a few modifications to accomodate what I hand on hand, but this turned out pretty well. I used spaghetti instead of linguine, canned mushrooms instead of fresh, and 2 cups of low-fat milk in place of the whipping cream. I thickened the sauce with corn starch, which worked just fine. I also used dried basil and used quite a bit of black pepper in the sauce. Tasty and very fast to get on the table. - 20 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My family really enjoyed this. An interesting variation is to add a cup of green peas; I also have added a quarter-cup of grated dry cheese (parmesan, romano, dry jack) to the sauce or on top. I recommend 1T butter and 1T olive oil for sauteeing the onion, garlic and shrooms. - 23 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very good. I did add 1 cup peas and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese as previously suggested. It was a little dry. So next time I would increase the whipping cream to 2 cups and/or decrease the amount of cheese. - 22 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
