1 lb spaghetti, boiled al dente, drained


grated parmesan cheese


Place all aromatics in a bowl and crush with back of a spoon. Take out 1 teaspoon of aromatics mix and drop in boiling water with spaghetti.


In a large skillet, warm cooked ham strips for about 5 minutes; remove from skillet and set aside. Saute garlic, onions, carrots, and ribs in margarine. Stir in flour until smooth and bubbly. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients and continue stirring until heated through, about 6 to 8 minutes. Coat cooked/drained spaghetti with creamy sauce. Transfer to plate and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy...and don't forget the wines!
