Creamy Ham Fettuccine
1 package fettuccine (12oz)
3 Tbsp finely chopped onion
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp all-purpose flour
3 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 tsp garlic salt (or to tasting)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 dried oregano
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Cook fettuccine according to package. While that’s cooking, in a large saucepan, sauté onions in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in cream, bring all to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly.
Add broccoli, and reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 7-10 minutes or until broccoli is crisp and tender. Stir occasionally. Stir in ham, 1/2 cup of cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, and nutmeg.
Drain fettuccine; serve with sauce. Sprinkle remaining cheese.
Best with Italian Cheese Bread. Will be extremely hot, remember to blow. 😉
