A great way to use up leftover ham. Generally a kid-pleaser, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook penne pasta in boiling water according to package directions. During the last 5 minutes of boiling, add the raw broccoli flowerets; drain.
  2. Place cubed ham into empty hot pot; pour cooked penne/broccoli mixture over top and gently toss together.
  3. While penne is cooking -- melt butter in a medium saucepan over med-low heat; add minced onion and saute until onions are translucent. Do not burn or brown.
  4. Keep heat on med-low and add half and half, milk, parmesan, salt, white pepper and garlic powder. Stir frequently until heated through, cheese is melted and smooth.
  5. Pour sauce over cooked penne mixture and gently toss to coat.
  6. Serve.

Very good! I used storeboughten alfredo sauce instead because I had that on hand, but it still tasted delicious! Great way to add veggies into a dish as well. Thanks for posting!
