Farfalle with peas, ham and cream. A dinner on the run, that was pretty much last night in our house.
A simple plate of pasta with peas, ham and cream is always welcome during those crazy nights.
You can use any tubular pasta with this dish. You want the sauce to be absorbed by the pasta. The cream is well balanced with the sweetness of the peas and the saltiness of the ham.
