Ham and Mushroom Sauce

Here is a relatively quick and delicious recipe for any time of the year.

Ham and Mushroom Sauce

  • 8 oz. cooked ham
  • 5 oz. fresh mushrooms
  • one-half cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons minced parsley
  • one-half teaspoon lemon juice
  • one-half teaspoon salt (optional as the ham is salty in itself)
  • one-half teaspoon pepper

Cut the ham into strips. Slice the mushrooms and sauté with the onions in butter until tender. Add stock and cream and reduce the mixture over high heat. When thickened, stir in the ham, peas, and parsley. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper and serve over pasta. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
