"I love pasta but get tired of serving it with tomato sauce all the time. My family really enjoys the different and delicious combination of ham and olives in this easy one-pot meal. It goes together so quickly and makes a great way to use up leftover ham. I like to serve it with a tossed salad and warm, crusty garlic bread," shares Valerie Smith of Aston, Pennsylvania.

"This is my recipe... If you use Italian salad dressing, you'll want to omit the olive oil. I use dried Italian seasoning - it can be found in the spice aisle of most grocery stores."

"Italian seasoning is basically oregano, basil, garlic salt & you could add rosemary. If you add italian dressing omit the olive oil."

"Italian seasoning is just herbs, Italian dressing is a lot of salt and other things. But since it is a pasta dish, you could probably do it but the taste and moistness might be a little different. "
