“This is based off of my Creamy Bacon & Leek Pasta. It's adapted for my husband and son who both prefer more simple meals. I love it because it takes less than 30 minutes to make and it pairs very nicely (as most pasta dishes do) with a salad and some bread. I hope you enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a pot full of water to a boil. Meanwhile add butter to skillet and melt. Once melted, add onion, garlic and ham. Sauté until onion is soft or ham is slightly browned.
  2. Once water starts to vigorously boil, add pasta. Meanwhile add flour to mixture one tablespoon at a time stirring constantly. Add in milk 1/2 cup at a time. (Add more or less to suite your tastes for sauce consistency.).
  3. Once sauce consistency is a little runnier than you like, add cheese and salt. Reduce heat to simmer while you drain pasta.
  4. Mix drained pasta together with sauce and serve with salad and bread for a complete quick meal!
  5. This meal is very versatile and you can change the quantities of the pasta or type of pasta to suite your own family's needs.
