The perfect way to use up all your leftover ham! It is amazingly creamy, comforting and kid-friendly!

Is it just me or are the leftovers really the best part about the holidays?

For me, it’s the ham leftovers. You serve it with your scrambled eggs for breakfast, or you make midday sandwiches to get you through that work crunch.

And now, with ALDI’s Appleton Farms Spiral Sliced Hickory Smoked Honey Ham, you can have even more.

This ham is budget-friendly, serves an army of at least 7-10, and is incredibly easy to serve.

And IF you happen to have any leftovers, you can have it in pasta-form, involving my favorite garlic parmesan cream sauce with the award-winning Priano Parmesan cheese.

So it’s basically the gold of all cream sauces.

I also added some green peas. Because we need a little color in our dish.

Not only that, it takes just minutes to whip up with your leftover ham!

The perfect way to use up all your leftover ham! It is amazingly creamy, comforting and kid-friendly!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces SimplyNature Organic Spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup Countryside Creamery unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Baker’s Corner all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Chef’s Cupboard chicken broth, or more, as needed
  • 1 teaspoon Stonemill dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Stonemill dried basil
  • 1/2 cup Countryside Creamery half and half
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Priano Parmesan
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups chopped Appleton Farms Spiral Sliced Hickory Smoked Honey Ham
  • 1 cup Season’s Choice Frozen Sweet Peas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. To make the garlic parmesan cream sauce, melt butter in the skillet skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  3. Gradually whisk in chicken broth, thyme and basil. Cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in half and half and Parmesan until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more half and half as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Stir in spaghetti, ham and peas, and gently toss to combine.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

*Half and half is equal parts of whole milk and cream. For 1 cup half and half, you can substitute 3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream or 2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream.
