    I've been making this for many, many years. It's absolutely fabulous. Use whatever shape pasta you have on hand. You'll not be disappointed. Occasionally I'll add sauted mushrooms or leftover cooked vegetables.

    This has been my go-to recipe for years, ever since I first saw it in the magazine. You can use any kind of pasta and cut the ham up any way you prefer, too. It will still be ABSOLUTELY everyone's favorite dish ever. Ever.
