Ham Skillet Pasta


I haven’t decided how I feel about this recipe yet. It could have been REALLY good. But it wasn’t quite there. However the ham I used was very close to going bad and had barely any flavor left and I think that’s why it fell short. The flavor was awesome, it was just missing that meaty flavor. Next time I will use good ham and enjoy the crap out of this! I did cut this recipe in half and used jarred roasted red peppers since that’s what I have and I’m not a huge fan of the flavor of fresh peppers.
