Ham with Creamy Fettuccine

There was a lot of ham leftover from Easter so this week we had some of my favorite ham dishes. I made the home version of Big Boy Slim Jims with my homemade tartar sauce and tonight itโ€™s Ham with Creamy Fettuccine. I add peas and diced carrots to sneak in extra vegetables.
