Ham and Cheese Linguine is a delightful simple recipe that is suitable for all of the family. I use baked ham for this recipe but any meat especially prosciutto works well. A simple Italian main dish ready from start to the table in only 20 minutes. I love linguine and use it for this recipe. However, spaghetti, farfalle, conchiglie are also ideal.
