The holidays will be here before we know it which means I am going to rely on some quick dinners for my family. If I thought fall was a busy time for us, the holidays kick it up a notch. From parties to holiday shopping to entertaining, it will fly by in a blink of an eye. And when it’s all over, there will be tons of leftovers.
One of my favorite things to use reuse over the holidays is ham. There are so many dishes you can use it. Omelets for breakfast. Sandwiches for lunch. And quick and easy dinners like this One Pan Creamy Ham & Peas Pasta.
This dinner was actually requested this week by older son (i.e. my pickiest eater) so I went for it. Ham was on sale at the grocery store. Since we have a crazy fall family schedule, it right into our meal plan for the week. In about 30 minutes, this One Pan Creamy Ham & Peas Pasta went from on the stove to on the table so we could actually sit down as a family and eat dinner together.
Now onto the recipe! Done in about 30 minutes, you have a meal filled with veggies, pasta, and ham covered with a creamy sauce all in one pan. I guarantee everyone will ask for seconds so don’t expect leftovers! I have a feeling this will be going into the meal rotation more often!
