Parmesan, Ham, and Spinach Pasta

“This is a great way to serve spinach and to use left-over Christmas ham. I learned the recipe while in the Netherlands, from a French chef. I usually double the recipe because it freezes very well. I have gotten many requests for this recipe. I usually serve it with garlic bread on the side. ENJOY!!”
