Garlic and Ham Spaghetti


"This is a wonderful and quick dinner. I have never not been asked for the recipe when I serve it to friends. Don't be discouraged by the number of ingredients... you can add or delete any items you wish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top, toss with olive oil and serve with French bread, if desired. Toss in some artichoke hearts if you'd like."

I have made this a few times and really love it. It is so easy to make, throw everything in a pan and sautee. I omit the olives and find it not necessary to toss with olive oil at the end. Wonde...
