Pasta With Caramelized Onions, Cabbage and Smoked Ham

Recipe by Michelle Kasper

Wonderfully easy dish that tasted great. I'm not a ham fan but my family is. The ham actually gave the dish a great flavor along with the addition of beef broth in the last few minutes of cooking.

This is wonderful. Super cheap as well. I used prepackaged sliced turkey ham and added a dash of liquid smoke. I did not add the beef broth. For the pasta I used ziti. For our family this serves at least 6. I will definitely make this again.
