"I made this using some ham from my "Freezer Stash" and a few pantry and fridge staples.If you like, you can make this more of a " One Dish Meal " add any leftover vegetable(s)you have on hand.And if just using salt & pepper isn't your style,add whatever seasonings to the sauce that you like.The cook time for the pasta is included in the " Prep " time.This recipe is meant for a main dish, if you want to serve more more people just add another side dish.
