    I threw this together the other day and was pleased with how colorful and yummy it was. Serve with a side of bread and a tall glass of V8.

      This was a nice lunch - not outstanding, but satisfying. It was great for the kids! They ate it right up! I didn't have tomatoes on hand, and I did add some garlic. I used tri-color rotini.

      This made a very YUMMY lunch! (My husband even had seconds.) I didn't have basil or parsley, so I added 2-3 teaspoons of oregano and some freshly ground black pepper. I also substituted diced cooked chicken for the ham. Tastes best hot, so do serve immediately! Thanks for the recipe, Milla!! Annisette
