A friend and I made this years ago in the early 90's. It was a recipe she had received. I had a copy but lost it and have been searching ever since. I had no idea that we had prepared a Paula Deene when I finally found it. It's a great dish.

Why is it that I can't find your honey baked ham in this area? I shop at Harvey's and sometimes Publix. During the holidays I shop Publix, but sometimes, during the year my family wants a good ham and I want to try yours.

My family loved it. It is a bit expensive costing $30 for the ingredients, but it will be plenty for my family for 2 meals. I added a large can of tomato paste and mixed in with the pasta just to give it a little extra zing. I also added extra feta cheese just so it did not go to waste. My son is not a big shrimp fan but eat three helpings.

This recipe ran me 37.00 for ingredients at the local grocery. Was easy to prepare but turned out extremely bland and fishy. I was beyond disappointed and for the price, could've ate out and enjoyed myself. The leftovers even went in the garbage---and I'm not a picky eater. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED.
