Creamy Pasta With Ham

As you know, we celebrated Winter Solstice and now we have a lot of leftover ham. This is one good way I used it. It tastes great! And very quick to prepare, about 15 minutes. Serves 4.

2 cups skim half and half (or just milk, if you prefer)
3 tbsp flour or cornstarch
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp parsley
2 cups cooked ham, diced
1 pound noodles of your choice, prepared (I used spaghetti noodles)

Over medium heat, put half and half or milk in a pot and add in your flour. Using a wire whisk, blend well until all lumps are gone. Add the garlic, cayenne pepper and parsley, and mix well. Heat till sauce is creamy but not boiling. Add the ham and mix. Heat through. Add the noodles, and coat well with the sauce. Cover and heat for about 10 minutes. Mix well. Sprinkle a little more parsley on top.

Serve! Only 7 points a serving! And a really tasty, simple way to use leftover ham. You can also use chicken if you wish. Eat up!
