Throw Something Together

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.

Add the whipping cream

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.
