We had Easter dinner at my parent’s house this year, and my mom sent me home with some of the leftover ham. We happened to have some fresh broccoli in the fridge, so I set out to find a recipe that would use up both of them.

Creamy Broccoli Pasta with Ham - this easy pasta recipe will become a new family favorite!

I found a recipe for creamy broccoli pasta in one of my Taste of Home cookbooks. (love them!) It looked incredibly easy, so I knew I needed to give it a try.

Easy Creamy Ham Broccoli Pasta recipe

The entire recipe is made in one large pan. While the water for the pasta is boiling, you chop up your broccoli and ham. When the pasta is 5 minutes away from being done, you add the broccoli to the water.

After draining the pasta and broccoli, you basically stir the ingredients together and heat through. Using a package of chive cream cheese gives it great flavor with very little fuss. Of course, if you prefer, you could use a different flavor, but we loved the chive!

If you don’t have fresh broccoli on hand, you could substitute frozen broccoli. Just stir it in at the end with the ham and heat through.
