Alfredo sauce combines the richness of cream with the tanginess of Parmesan cheese—ingredients that go wonderfully well with pasta. This is a delicious meal that can be rustled up while the rest of the gang put the tents up.
Serves 8 Prep. time: 10 mins Cooking time: 10 mins
In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil and cook the pasta for 10 minutes, until it is al dente.
In a skillet melt half of the butter over medium heat and sauté the mushrooms until brown. Add the cream to the mushrooms and, stirring frequently, add the ham and chicken and heat through.
When the pasta is ready, remove it from the heat, drain, return to the pot, and toss with the remaining butter and the mushroom mixture, stirring it around thoroughly to distribute the ingredients. Serve in large bowls with a sprinkling of Parmesan and lots of black pepper.
