    This lovely pasta recipe I've learnt from my father-in-law. The creme fraiche tastes great with ham and broccoli. I hope you will enjoy it.

    I liked this- but we reduced the pasta a little and had to add some sour cream (ran out of creme fraiche). I liked using the creme fraiche with this- I've never used it before. The broccoli and ham added so much to the dish. I agree with the other reviewer that it could use some garlic though.  -  12 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe has potential. I added a clove of minced garlic to the sauteed onions to give the dish a little pizzaz. 1/2 cup of creme fraiche isn't enough for all that pasta; I used 1 full cup AND 1/4 cup sour cream. A little shredded cheddar cheese might also be a good addition. Overall, this recipe has a nice presentation and texture, but the flavor is quite unremarkable.  -  21 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had been looking for a way to use my extra creme fraiche, but unfortunately I didn't think it gave enough flavor to the meal.  -  09 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
