I had some leftover Ham from our 2011 Christmas Dinner,and needed a different way to serve it.O.k. I hear some of you saying " It's the same way to make M & C with ham. " .But I think some of the ingredients in the sauce might not be what you expect.So, give it a try and tell me what you think. Submitted to Food.com ( a.k.a. " ZAAR " )on January 2nd.2012.

  3. Cook onion until soft, then add flour and cook until flour is lightly browned.

  6. Remove from heat,add cooked pasta,ham and peas.
