White Pasta with Ham & Peas

I just love pasta! White sauce, red sauce, buttered… it’s all YUM to me! However, my husband isn’t a big red sauce pasta fan. So I am always trying new recipes to fit the needs of a picky husband + picky kids! This recipe is quick and easy and one thing I can count on them all eating!

White Pasta with Ham & Peas


  • 1 pound of bow tie pasta
  • 1 ham steak
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Freshly grated Parmesan
  • Parsley

Cook the pasta according to package. Meanwhile, warm ham steak through in a skillet and then cut up into bite size pieces. Return ham to skillet along with 1 cup of frozen peas and 1 cup of heavy cream. Bring skillet to a simmer and stir occasionally until sauce thickens. Mix pasta into skillet and toss to cover in sauce. Salt and pepper to taste and garnish with parsley and parmesan cheese. img_4727img_4728img_4733
