Ham & Creamy Penne

In an effort to use up the Honey Baked Ham we had for dinner on Sunday I decided to do a pasta and came across a yummy recipe--which I of course altered, because I can't leave well enough alone.  But the end result was delicious.  And simple, which I also love.

What you will need:

17 oz. of pasta (I used penne, and I think the original called for linguine--but use what you like. . .or have on hand)
1 pkg (16 oz) frozen broccoli florets
2 cups of cubed ham
1/3 cup of mayo
1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Easy Peasy Directions:

Cook the pasta as directed--adding in the broccoli for the last four or five minutes.  Drain. Return to pan. Add remaining ingredients--toss. . .eat. . .ENJOY!

All these recipies are so yummy looking!
You should put your exceptional photography and writing skills to use and make them into a photobook recipie book. I know I'd sure get one.
