One-Pot Ham & Veggie Pasta
Make this One Pot Ham & Veggie Pasta Dinner and have dinner ready in no time at all! This easy one-pot recipe can be prepped, cooked, and ready in less than thirty minutes!
With this one-pot recipe you are using only one pot, so less of a mess afterward. This is super important for busy moms like me. You can sneak in those veggies too. The kids won’t even notice…well maybe they will but they will love it I promise! Look at this deliciousness!
Super easy ingredients. All you need is some chopped onion, garlic, ham, your choice of pasta, some simple seasonings and your veggies. I used frozen organic vegetables.
Can I use fresh vegetables for this simple one-pot meal?
You can, but using frozen vegetables is just as great! I love using frozen vegetables because they’re really inexpensive and they taste great. I’ve saved so much money and time by using frozen instead of fresh.
The vegetables are also versatile if you don’t have all three, just toss in one kind! The flavor will be there no matter what! The leftovers are really good, too.
What other cheese could I add to this recipe?
If you’re a cheese lover like me, you’re never going to be able to add in enough cheese! This is what I love most about this recipe. Top it with parmesan and if that isn’t enough, add in some other cheesy choices like cheddar or pepper jack as well.
You can even have some shredded cheese set to the side so everyone can add in their own extras as they want.
Doesn’t this recipe just sound so amazing? I think that you’re really going to love it!
Then you will want to add your cubed ham, broth, pasta, oregano, basil, pepper, and vegetables. Stir well and heat until it comes to a boil. Once it starts to boil, you are going to cover and heat for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is cooked to your liking.
Then top with as much Parmesan cheese to your liking. I love mine extra cheesy!
For this recipe, any onion can be used. You can use leftover ham from a ham dinner, or buy a ham at the deli counter and cube yourself or purchase it already diced. If you don’t have seashell pasta, use something else and adjust the cooking time accordingly.
Super easy right? Not a lot of mess. The leftovers are really good, too. Tell me how you like it!
Once you make this one-pot recipe once, you’re going to find out that cooking everything in the same pot is one of the best ways to cook!
