     Creamy Pasta with Leeks, Peas and Ham

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   Low-fat
Preptime   30

1 lb. Pasta
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 leeks
1 medium onion
salt and pepper
1 clove garlic
c. whole milk
4 oz. lowfat cream cheese
c. grated Parmesan (1 oz)
Pinch ground nutmeg
1 c. frozen peas
6 oz. thinly sliced ham

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid, drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the leeks, onion and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until very tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the cream cheese, Parmesan and nutmeg. Stir in the peas and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Toss the pasta with the cream sauce and ham, adding some of the reserved cooking liquid if the pasta seems dry.
