Ham Fettuccine

        I love meals that come together quickly but taste like you've spent a ton of time in the kitchen on it. This is one such dish! It can be made in under 30mins and to make the meal complete, serve it with a loaf of crusty bread and a salad :) 

Ham Fettuccine

12 ounces uncooked Fettuccine
1/4 cup cup Chopped Onion
3 TBSP. Butter
1-2 tsp. Minced Garlic
3 cups cubed full cooked Ham
1/2-1lb sliced fresh Mushrooms
1-1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
1-1/4 tsp. Dried Basil
1-1/4 tsp. Dried Parsley Flakes
1/2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 cup Meatless Spaghetti Sauce
3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add garlic;cook 1 minute longer. Add the ham,mushrooms and seasonings; cook and stir for 4-5minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

Stir in spaghetti sauce. Bring to a boil;cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat;stir in cream. Drain fettuccine,toss with ham mixture. Serve with crusty bread and a fresh salad.
** You can leave the mushrooms out all together if you aren't a fan of them**
