Creamy Ham and Pea Farfalle

This is definitely not something you want to eat everyday, you would have a heart attack!  A butter and cream sauce is probably not on a cardiac diet!  Every once and a while it is just nice to have a comforting creamy pasta!  With a few adjustments, I got this recipe from Mindika Moments.

1/4 C. butter
1 C. Ham cut into ¼ inch pieces (or Canadian Bacon)
1 C. frozen peas – defrosted (I actually used 2 cups...the more veggies the better, right?)
2-3 T. flour (2 T. your sauce will be thinner. If you like a thick sauce, use 3 T.)
4 C. Heavy Cream
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1 C. parmesan Cheese grated
16 oz. bag or box farfalle pasta cooked and drained

1. Melt butter in a large sauce pan. Heat until bubbly. Add ham (or canadian bacon) and stir until just heated through.

2. Add flour and stir until incorporated. Stir for about 3 minutes to cook out flour taste.

3. Add Cream, Garlic, and Cheese and stir until sauce thickens.

4. Add peas and pasta.  Serve warm.
