Peas are a perfect match with ham and cream, and together, they create a fast but luxurious sauce. If you don’t like sage, feel free to leave it out or substitute another herb, such as thyme or tarragon.

I'll never go back to white sauce again. So good!
Seriously yummy! Made mostly as written, but with 1/2 lb pasta and 1 C cream. Other ingredients as listed. Added a bit of lemon & lemon zest at the end as another reviewer suggested & we thought it made the dish. I tried simmering a crushed garlic clove in the cream for just a touch of garlic - wasn't enough, might add some finely chopped next time. If you like sage, up the amount as it was barely noticeable. I'll add more next time because I like it, but not required. Husband went nuts for this dish declaring he could eat it again next week! (we have leftovers for this week!)
It was delicious and so easy!
I made this as written. I would definitely make this again.
