Rajun' Cajun Ham & Broccoli Alfredo

I had some leftover Easter ham and had some frozen broccoli in the freezer, so I based this recipe on Chef Lorac's Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta (please try this when you get a chance its great). Be careful with this, it starts out as wonderfully mild sauce, but it sneaks up on you with the heat (at least it does for me :) Submitted on April 19th 2006.

Good stuff Shapeweaver! My family loved this. Flavor was excellent, but mine was a little dry so next time I may double the sauce. It could be that I used too much pasta cause I eyeballed it....none the less we had a super meal!

This was really good! My dh and 2 sons and dd inhaled it, as did I! I just realized that I forgot all about the parmesan cheese, so next time, it will be even better!
