Ham and Spaghetti Alfredo

Ham and Spaghetti AlfredoLeftover ham doesn't always mean sandwiches. With purchased Alfredo sauce and frozen broccoli florets, this pasta entrée comes together quickly. Complete the meal with a mixed greens salad and some breadsticks.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 pound ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
8 ounces dry spaghetti
2 cups broccoli florets
1 (10-ounce) container light Alfredo sauce
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cook spaghetti in a 5-quart saucepan according to the package directions. Add the broccoli florets 2 minutes before spaghetti is al dente. (Use the cooking time given on the spaghetti package as a guideline). Drain and keep warm.
  2. Add the ham, Alfredo sauce and pepper flakes to the pan and heat over medium heat until warmed, about 1 minute. Return the spaghetti and broccoli to the pan and toss to mix. Spoon onto individual serving plates.
  3. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

Makes 4 servings.
