Pasta Carbonara With Ham

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WendyMaq

I happened upon this recipe on the web while searching for dishes using leftover ham. Because of the creamy texture, I like to use a pasta with lines to get as much of it as possible! Personally, I would add peas, but they're not allowed in the house. So I accompany this with a large leafy salad. Very quick, very easy.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was a huge success with the kids! I used country ham and it turned out really great. My husband and I really liked it too although next time, I think I will add white wine for a little more flavor. A caesar salad and french bread made this an easy, delicious, filling weekday meal. Thanks for sharing!
