Ham Fettuccine with Breaded Shrimp

I love fettuccine especially when prepared creamy. But I don't cook and eat it always since I am also concern of my health. Preparing this once in a while satisfies me, making one of my meals perfect.

I always have cream sauce of any brand in my pantry. I use two bottles of it in my pasta. I also love to experiment with the ingredients like adding different meat. I have tried sausages alone before and it was good. This time around, I just had ham which was also perfect with fettuccine. I added some breaded shrimp and it was not bad. Hubby liked it.
12 ounces fettuccine
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion or 1/4 cup finely chopped
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
2 bottles cream sauce of any brand
Ham, cut into cubes
Parmesan cheese
baked Breaded Shrimp (optional)
Heat the oil in a small saute pan over medium heat, cook the onion until tender. Add the cubed ham, and cook for 2 minutes more. Season with fresh ground pepper. Stir in the cream sauce and keep it warm over low heat while you prepare the pasta.

Boil the pasta as directed on the package. Drain and add to the sauce pan. Toss with the sauce. Garnish with breaded shrimp (baked beforehand) or sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve at once.
