Ham & Pea Pasta

Frying mushrooms & onions
This has been one of my favourite recipes for the past few years. Its quick to make and very tasty and healthy.

5 handfuls of pasta shapes
300ml of creme fraise (low fat)
250g of mushrooms, sliced
300g tin of garden peas
black pepper
300g ham (I often slow cook a gammon joint during the day) or bacon can also be used
1 pre-steamed carrot, cubed (Optional)
2 cooked beetroots (Optional)
1 tin of sweetcorn (Optional)
1 tsp of mustard (Optional)

Pasta sauce
  1. Boil the pasta in a pan
  2. Chop mushrooms roughly & fry gently until soft
  3. Add the creme fraise, peas, chopped ham, black pepper and other optional ingredient(s), heat gently whilst stirring until all mixed together
  4. When the pasta is cooked, add a tablespoon of the pasta water to the creme fraise mix, drain the pasta and stir in with the rest
  5. Serve with grated cheese as a garnish

Serving suggestion: serve with garlic bread or salad
