Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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 2
    You can substitute chopped cooked turkey or chicken instead of the ham if you like.
