Rediscovering a "Lost" Recipe

Many many years ago I found a recipe in a magazine for linguine with ham, peas, and swiss cheese. I made it, loved it, and then promptly lost it. I've been looking for a replacement, and knew I could probably create one on my own. Then a few days ago I saw a recipe on Something So Clever that was a great starter for trying to recover my old recipe. Alicat made Amazing Fettuccine with Peas, Ham, Cream, and Parmesan, and I thought I could start with her recipe, take out the garlic, and add Swiss cheese. So I did. It was wonderful– just like the recipe I lost all those many years ago.

Linguine with Ham, Peas, and Swiss Cheese

8 oz. linguine (I used Dreamfields)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup sliced ham, cut in 1" long matchsticks
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Cook linguine in a large pot of salted boiling water. Drain, return to pot, and keep warm. In a medium saucepan, heat broth and cream over medium heat. When nearly boiling, lower heat and add remaining ingredients. Simmer about 10 minutes. Pour over cooked pasta and stir. Serves 2.
