I did do a couple of things different than the recipe but structurally left it in tact. I watch my fat and didn't want the pasta as I was looking for a tasty veggie dish. I found it! I skipped the pasta entirely (when I do add pasta I would do whole wheat to keep it hearty) and used a little olive oil instead of butter. My ham was salty so I only put enough for flavor. Same with the parmesan. YUM! A great side dish.

I have a family of 5 and I will be doubling this recipe the next time. Everyone wanted another serving and there was nothing left!
