As it is written, this is a bland mess. However, the thought behind it is good so I took it a few steps further. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic, 6 stalks of asparagus cut in 1 inch lengths, a small yellow squash sliced, some par boiled baby carrots and a cup of broccoli florets. Saute all the garlic and veggies together until they are heated through then continue as the recipe is written.



This recipe was bland. The sauce was heavy and, as originally submitted, way too much for the amount of veggies and pasta.



I read all of the reviews and made the changes accordingly. I still have to tweak the consistency, thinning it out as it still is rather a "glob". The taste and ease of making it was there though. What I did was use a carton of mushrooms, a bunch of green onions, a whole green and red pepper, a few stalks of celery with the inner stalks and tops, a frozen bag of peas and a bag of broccoli (thawed). Next time I would use fresh, not frozen broccoli, that's what helped turn it to mush. Some crunch would be nice. Omitted the ham. Added some pepper. Using 8 oz. of spaghetti, this amount of veggies was plenty, it's just the consistency that needs to be worked on. I hate to say adding heavy cream might do it but then it's not something you would eat every day.
