    Great way to use up left over ham from Easter. Everyone enjoyed it but I found it was missing a little some thing.

    there was little or no flavour. My family did not like it. We thought the peas were a strange combination with pasta. A little salt and pepper would have been a good idea. Next time more cheese, no peas, sauteed bacon and onions would be great. I would not make this again without some major changes to the taste.
