This pasta dish was a big hit for dinner tonight. My husband even had a big bowl and repeatedly commenting on how good it was. In between his grunts and lip smacks, I was tempted to remind him he did not like mushrooms. I kept quite. I’m glad delicious food is forcing him out of his box.
This is easy to make. I loved it. What’s not to love with sautéed cremini mushrooms, ham, cream, and parmigiano-reggiano cheese? Homemade fettuccine was the suggested pasta. So I made a batch of each “straw and hay”, yellow and green fettuccine. I made my fresh pasta right before I cooked the sauce. If you make it ahead and dry your fresh pasta you could save even more time. Prep to plate in 15 minutes.
Yellow and Green Fettuccine
The sauce is very flavorful. It’s rich and creamy but not heavy. The ham adds nice texture. The two colors of pasta are a feast for the eyes. This is a great dish to make when you have company over. You’ll get rave reviews with little effort.
