Love this recipe Hally. I also like scalloped potatoes and ham. Love it cold too.

This was such a quick and easy recipe. I used chicken instead of ham (because that's what I had in the fridge that needed using up). As the chicken was already cooked, i added it at the end of the cooking time, just to heat it up.

I had frozen peas and corn mix in the freezer so just added that. I also added some mushrooms into the TM bowl and cooked them in a little butter before adding the cream, etc.

I am still spun out that you can cook asta in this way! I am totally amazed! Talk about saving energy!

Can't wait to try this again with ham!

Thanks for such an easy recipe! :)

I made a note on my copy to try chicken next time myself blackwood - I'm more likely to have leftover chicken than ham now Christmas is over. I think this recipe has great possibilities for all sorts of alternatives.

Oh My Goodness.  What an easy recipe (even my DH could do it - but of course he won't)  and he loved it!
Never though to cook pasta this way - how simple and quick.  Good one!

My DH has requested we "get rid" of the left over ham today as he is sick of it being in the fridge.  Going to make this later today and I'm sure it will be lovely.

I told him I'd found a quick recipe on the forum to use some more of the ham - he replied I loved that forum, so many great things come from it!

Thanks Hally  :D

Guess you could try it in a saucepan with a lid.  If it's not completely cooked (like mine) add it back to the sauce in the TM bowl and cook it a little more.

I made this this afternoon to use up some of our ham.  We'll be having it for lunch tomorrow and I've placed the rest in lunch size portions in the freezer.

I didn't have any peas, so I cooked some mushrooms and zucchini in a little butter for a few minutes before adding the cream.  Also added some garlic and chilli.  The little bit I tasted is lovely.
