Delicious!!! Comments above are good - cooked pasta al dente and pasta wasn't "mushy." You could also substitute chicken for the ham which creates another delicious dish.

Looks good, well worth trying. Substitutions are a bit screwed up. Suggest you keep your proof reader away from the cooking wine till after working hours.

@dmjt2011, Please feel free to adjust the cooking time if you prefer your pasta slightly "al dente." Let us know how it turns out! --Editor of RecipeLion

i love this idea, but I have a question: does the pasta get mushy?? my mom used to call it schvat... nasty, like canned ravioli....
