Ham and Pea Pasta

A light weeknight dinner, perfect for a busy night when you don’t have much time to throw dinner together.

Pasta doesn’t need to be off the menu when you are following a healthy eating plan. Just try to use wholemeal pasta if you can, and watch your portion sizes. Why not serve this with a big green salad?
