Penne with Broccoli, Ham, and Cheese

| Sep 19, 2010

A recipe that always comes out when there is leftover ham in the refrigerator, this colorful and very healthy dish tastes great. Use just deli ham from the grocery store or dress it up with some fancy cured ham such as real Italian Prosciutto.

Ingredients

1 box Dreamfields Penne Rigate

3 cups fresh broccoli florets

6 ounces cooked ham, cut into thin strips

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Salt & Pepper

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, adding broccoli florets during last 2 minutes. Drain well.
  2. In large bowl combine pasta, broccoli and ham. Add cheese; toss gently. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Note: One 10-ounce package frozen broccoli, thawed, can be substituted for the florets. Add to drained pasta with ham. Continue as recipe directs.
