we had this tonight for dinner and it was sooooo good.

Pretty Penne Ham Skillet

1 lb uncooked penne pasta
3 c cubed fully cooked ham
1 large sweet red pepper, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 c minced fresh parsley or dried
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tsp minced fresh basil or 1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp minced fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 c olive oil
3 T butter
1 T lemon juice
1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
1/2 c shredded parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile in large skillet saute ham, red pepper, onion, parsley, garlic, basil and oregano in oil and butter for 4-6 min. or until ham is brown and vegetables are tender. Stir in broth and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Drain pasta, stir into ham mixture. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Serves 6.

**Ayelet’s notes: I used whole wheat pasta and tossed the parmesan into the skillet at the very end. YUM**
