There used to be a little restaurant in a neighboring county that had two specialties that I absolutely loved...their angel biscuits and country ham fettuccine. I have never seen it on any other restaurant's menu and since I really loved it, I had to recreate it at home. This version comes pretty close to theirs and it's a quick meal to put together but is impressive to anyone who doesn't watch how easy it is.
3 cups country ham, chopped
8 oz fettuccine pasta
1 jar Bertolli Alfredo sauce (I prefer Bertolli, but you can use your favorite)
1 8oz. block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup half and half
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbs. butter
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Whisk in the 1 cup of Parmesan cheese until the Alfredo sauce is smooth.
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package, drain well and then add directly to the Alfredo sauce.
Gently toss the pasta with the sauce. That's it! Place in your serving bowls and garnish! You can make this in less than 30 minutes...start to finish! Add a salad or vegetable and bread and you have dinner!
I garnished with sliced green onions and fresh parsley, chives would also be great.
