Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the garlic, shallots, and red pepper flakes until the garlic is fragrant but not browned, about 3 minutes. Stir in the walnuts, and cook until the nuts give off a toasted smell, about 2 minutes; stir in ham slices, and cook the mixture until the ham is hot and beginning to brown, about 5 more minutes.

  • Lightly toss the pasta with the ham mixture in the skillet, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.

I NEVER review anything online but felt I needed to with this recipe. It was completely different than our usual rotation of dinners and the flavor was awesome! The only adjustments I made was cutting the red pepper to 1/2 tsp. (still plenty spicy for us) and using 12 oz of whole wheat spaghetti. I would probably use 8-10 oz next time. (there are only 3 of us) This is really worth a try. Awesome flavors and looks impressive too! I cut the ham into small matchsticks per the Allrecipes magazine. Read More

This was very good. Reminds me of Pasta Alla Grecia but made with ham rather than pancetta. I did have to add a 1/2 cup of pasta water to thin it out slightly. I also omitted the walnuts because I had a guest who was allergic but next time I'll add them. Read More

Very tasty. Make sure you matchstick or chop the ham so it mixes well. Read More

My family and I loved this recipe. It's delicious. Thank you for sharing it. The only deviation from the original recipe is I used more cheese. Read More

Phenomenal! I added julienne'd zucchini JUST after stirring in the ham. Absolutely awesome. Allowed individuals (hubby & myself) to add the parm cheese as we served avoiding pasta that was stuck together & oily on reheat. This recipe is a keeper. I'm passing it along to my boys and relatives. (Next time I'm adding in some sauteed mushrooms. YUM!) Read More

This was good following the recipe, but my family thought the flavor was mild. Reheated some for lunch the next day and added a drizzle of maple syrup, definitely added some flavor. Will incorporate the syrup in the recipe next time I make it. Read More
