The week after Mother’s Day I had a ton of leftover ingredients from the brunch. It was either all going to go in the trash, or I was going to have to use it up somehow. One night after I got home late, Mr. P (the boyfriend) was super hungry. I quickly looked through the refrigerator and took out a couple of ingredients. I had ham, which I definitely did not want to waste, broccoli and I had whipping cream. Immediately, I thought pasta!
Creamy Pasta with Ham & Broccoli
2 cups cut broccoli
1 cup cooked Ham
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbsp olive oil
Take 2 cloves of garlic and mince in a pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes until translucent.
Next add the cut up broccoli to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes until the broccoli is tender.
Add the cooked ham next.
Now for the ooey gooey goodness –whipping cream! Cook for about 3 minutes.
Finally add the parmesan cheese to the mixture to get that thick gooey consistency. God it smells so good. Feel free to season with black pepper and avoid packing a spoonful of the sauce in your mouth. You may miss and get it all over your cute pink shirt.
