How to Make Springtime Penne
- Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute asparagus and onion in butter for 5-8 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender.
- Add the ham, cream, pepper and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook over low heat for 1 minute. Drain pasta. Add to the asparagus mixture; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
- *TIP*: A slice of angel food cake topped with fresh strawberries or other fruit makes a perfect finish to this entree. Don't forget a dollop of whipped cream!
