Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Tip
The secret to evenly cooked pasta that doesn't stick together is a large pot of continuously boiling water. Use a pot large enough for the pasta to move around freely, and keep the water boiling.
Tip
You can substitute chopped cooked turkey or chicken instead of the ham if you like.
