• 1/2 pound ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 8 ounces spaghetti
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 10-oz container light Alfredo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook spaghetti in a 5-quart saucepan according to the package directions. Add the broccoli florets 2 minutes before spaghetti is al dente. (Use the cooking time given on the spaghetti package as a guideline). Drain and keep warm.

Add the ham, Alfredo sauce and pepper flakes to the pan and heat over medium heat until warmed, about 1 minute. Return the spaghetti and broccoli to the pan and toss to mix. Spoon onto individual serving plates.

Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and freshly grated pepper.

Serves 4

Leftover ham doesn't always mean sandwiches.  With purchased Alfredo sauce and frozen broccoli florets, this pasta entree comes together quickly.  Complete the meal with a mixed greens salad and some breadsticks.
