Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas


My Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas makes dinner hassle-free and delicious any night of the week! 2015-01-06 Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas 4148 Pasta always makes a great weeknight dinner. You can do just about anything with pasta. If your house is anything like mine you probably see happy faces when you serve pasta for dinner. My guys love pasta! I mean they love, love, love a good hearty pasta dish. That’s why I am constantly playing with different pasta combinations just to keep things fresh.

Today I share with you my own version of Creamy Pasta with Ham & Peas.  Unlike many sauces out there this one does NOT start with two cups of heavy whipping cream. This dish is incredibly easy to whip together and is full of easy ingredients.

Basically, I took a few of our favorite ingredients, pasta, ham (great way to use up leftovers), peas, and of course a nice flavorful creamy sauce. Okay you got me, my youngest is not a pea enthusiast, but with the Pipe Rigate (large shells) some of the peas ended up in the pasta. You mean some of the peas end up in the pasta and can’t be seen, huh? :)

Hope you really enjoy this one!   [Read more…]
