Pasta with Ham and Peas

Cooking time:   25 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

    There are some vegetables that are better frozen than fresh (in my opinion).  Peas fall into that category.  But, because I don't buy them fresh, I often forget about these sweet little green rounds. Another easy skillet dinner.

Pasta with Ham and Peas

Total time: 25 minutes
   This is such a colorful pasta dish it makes me happy just looking at it.  Using frozen peas and deli ham has this is ready faster than you can cook the pasta. A bit of creamy goat cheese brings it all together.
