With ham, asparagus, onion and pasta in a creamy sauce, this stovetop supper is tasty enough for even your pickiest guests. It's great with Penne, but you can also try it with Mostaccioli or another type of pasta.

How to Make Springtime Penne

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. *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!
