ham and pea Bucatini


If you have followed me for long, you’ve heard me talk about my dad and his love for pork. It seriously doesn’t matter what cut of pork it is.
We often ate ham growing up, and now when he cooks it he sends some to my house since it is just him and my mom at home. I never mind, his ham is always perfect.
So I had a lot of ham this time, we made a few sandwiches and ate it as a meal and still had a few pieces left.
I chopped it up and decided to make this pasta. It is such an easy pasta and very filling.
