Pasta Carbonara with Ham and Sweet Peas
Dinner Ideas for Ham
The only thing that could make classic pasta carbonara even more amazing is our hickory smoked ham. This is one of our favorite weeknight dishes.
Frozen Sweet Peas
Parmesan Cheese, grated and divided
|1 (7 oz)||
Jones Dairy Farm Ham, diced
Cook pasta in large pot containing 6 quarts boiling salted water according to package directions, adding peas during last 3 minutes of cooking.
Before draining pasta, reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain pasta and set aside.
Beat eggs in large bowl; slowly drizzle in hot pasta water while whisking. Add 1/4 cup cheese and whisk to blend.
Meanwhile, melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and ham; cook until onion is soft, about 3 minutes.
Add drained pasta and peas to skillet; pour in egg mixture, stirring to coat.
Cook and stir over low heat to avoid scrambling eggs, until sauce thickens slightly.
Serve topped with remaining Parmesan cheese.
