Creamy Veggie Pasta With Ham (Low-Fat)

“I was craving Pasta Primavera from our local Italian eatery, but we are trying to make healthier choices. I just happened to have a can of fat-free evaporated milk, so I threw this recipe together. Can't wait to see the nutritional values... I'm hoping it'll rate well because this was really tasty!”
