Tips  

This is a quick meal. Make sure to prepare all of the ingredients before you start cooking because it cooks really fast. Cube the ham and cut all the veggies ahead of time and it will go together like a dream.

Use the boiling water that you’re planning to cook the pasta in as the blanching liquid. Blanch the veggies and then use the water to boil the pasta—it’s super slick!
