"Hay and Straw"

I always make this when we've got leftover ham. My family loves this!

1 (16 oz.) package linguine
1 T. margarine
2 cups cubed (or julienned) cooked ham
3 cups frozen sweet peas, thawed
1 1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions. Melt margarine or butter over medium heat in large skillet and saute ham for about three minutes. Add peas and heat through. Drain linguine, transfer to skillet or serving dish and toss with ham and pea mixture. In a sauce pan, combine parmesan cheese, garlic powder and cream. Add salt and pepper. Toss with pasta mixture. This should make about 8 servings.

Wow, "Hay and Straw" sounds delicious. Funny, I just made "Ham-fried Rice" for my son last night--with our leftover ham. It's similar, but with rice instead of pasta.
