Author Notes: Just a classically simple recipe for ham and peas with a simple lemony cream sauce. Light, refreshing, and comforting. —mtlabor

Serves: 2-4

  • 1

    packet Bowtie Pasta

  • 1

    tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1

    cup heavy cream

  • 1/2

    cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 1

    lemon, juiced

  • 1

    packet pre-diced ham

  • 1

    packet frozen peas



  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Set a pot of water to boil. Drop in pasta and cook until al dente, about 8-10 minutes.
  2. While you’re waiting for the water and pasta, heat a large saute pan and melt butter. Add flour and stir until beginning to slightly brown. You want to cook out the “flour-y” taste and get it somewhat nutty.
  3. Add cream and stir until starting to boil and slightly thicken.
  4. Turn the heat down just a tad, and add in lemon juice and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. In a microwave safe bowl, cook the peas for about 1-2 minutes. Just to warm them through. Then add to pan with sauce, along with ham.
  6. Drain the pasta and add to cream sauce. Mix until everything is well-combined and serve hot! Top with fresh parmesan cheese, if desired!
