      This ended up being a quick and satisfying dinner. As it happens, I had some leftover rigatoni in a marinara sauce, which I used as the pasta. I also had a ham I needed to use, so chopped that up into small dice instead of using the shaved. So the dish had a pinkish tinge to it, but the flavors all worked together very well indeed. Even Mr Grumpy ate it all up, after pulling a face when I brought in dinner!

      For the low fat and almost no sugars this is amazing. It's very hearty and filling and had great flavors and texture. It's also super easy, the sauce is made and waiting for the pasta to finish cooking. This is easily a "go to" dish if you have ham in the fridge. The whole family should enjoy it a lot.
