     Ham and Pasta Skillet Dinner

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None

1 lb small tube or shell pasta
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
3 cups fully cooked ham, diced
1 large sweet red pepper, diced
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 cups chicken broth or chicken stock
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions, only cooking until al dente since pasta will continue to cook and soak up liquid when added to the skillet.
While the pasta is cooking, in a large skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Add pepper, onion, and garlic and cook until vegetables are tender, about 4-6 minutes. Add ham, basil, and oregano and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in broth (or stock) and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half (at first it looks like it will be way too brothy but never fear, if you are patient it will reduce).
Stir drained pasta into ham and vegetable mixture. Add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and toss. Sprinkle parsley and remaining Parmesan cheese over the top of the pasta. Serve immediately.
Serving Suggestions
steamed broccoli, roasted cauliflower, corn on the cob, green salad, fruit
