This Ham and Asparagus Spaghetti recipe is one of my go-to meals when we have leftover ham, especially after a holiday. Made with tender chunks of ham, spaghetti noodles, asparagus, and parmesan cheese, this tasty ham dinner recipe comes together in a snap.
This Ham with Pasta and Cheese recipe is a wonderful dinner idea any time of year. It is easy to make and you can make it with lunch meat ham too. So economical and EASY!
This is my own Ham and Asparagus Spaghetti recipe and is not made with canned soup. I have nothing against ham soup, but there is already enough sodium in the ham, that I like to control the salt that is added to the dish. It also has asparagus which my entire family loves! Honestly, it is one of the best vegetables out there and even better when it is on sale.
I try to look for vegetables that are on sale and incorporate them into my meals because they seem to have gotten to be so expensive these days. By the way, even if you are not planning on having ham for Easter, the stores usually have ham priced pretty good so it is worth picking up and freezing for a later date. If you do not have room for a small ham, a ham steak also works great and is super economical!
This recipe is great anytime you have some ham available. You can use lunchmeat ham too!
The asparagus is sauteed on the stove.
While the asparagus is cooking, you can prepare the spaghetti. Once you drain the spaghetti, you can combine ingredients and add the cheese and flavorings for the best Ham and Cheese Pasta!
