“This recipe started with the question of what to do with leftover ham. It's an adapted recipe from Taste of Home. Although very rich, we loved the mix of fresh vegetables with the ham in a cream-based sauce. I'm going to try the recipe again, lightening the sauce by using half and half with chicken broth to replace the cream.”
