How to Make Pasta with Ham and Peas

Makes 4 servings (recipe adapted from https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/pasta-shells-peas-and-ham)
Ingredients: 1pound (480 g) uncooked small pasta shells, spaghetti, or elbow macaroni, 1 oz (30 ml) plus 1 teaspoon (5 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, 5 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced, 10 oz (300 g) package frozen peas, thawed, 1/4 pound (120 g) thinly sliced country ham, 1¼ cups heavy (double) cream, 1 cup (250 ml) chicken stock, 1/4 cup (60 ml) grated Parmesan cheese, 1/3 cup (80 ml) chopped fresh dill, salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions: Pour the water in a large pot. Add salt and stir well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook, partially covered, until al dente.


Using a colander, drain cooked pasta, then return to the pot and toss with 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of extra-virgin olive oil to prevent sticking. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat remaining extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add sliced garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, for about 4 minutes. Stir in the peas and ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until the peas are hot and the ham is lightly browned, for further 5 minutes.

Pour in heavy cream and chicken stock. Mix well. Simmer over medium heat until slightly thickened, for about 5 minutes. Remove creamy sauce from the heat and stir it into cooked pasta or spaghetti.

Add grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh dill. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Divide pasta with ham and peas between 4 serving bowls. Serve immediately.
