Tonight for dinner I was planning on making ham steaks with pineapple however I had totally forgotten until the 11th hour that I had bought some absolutely adorable bags of easter pasta from Cost Plus World Market about a week ago so I had to re-think dinner and of course didn’t want to go out anywhere today to buy more ingredients so came up with my own little recipe. It was delicious and you can make it with regular tri-color vegetable pasta.

I hope you can see in the photo to the left the tiny little pasta eggs, ducks and bunnies. So cute.


1 large ham steak
1pkt easter (or regular tri-color) pasta
1 green pepper (chopped)
1 carrot (thinly sliced)
1 cup corn
1 cup mushrooms (sliced)
1 can diced pineapple

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
1tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp seeded mustard
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh parsley (chopped)

pepper & grated cheese to top

Boil pasta according to directions on the packet. While that is cooking grill or pan-fry ham steak (about 3 minutes each side) then cut into 1″ cubes. Combine all dressing ingredients into a bowl and set aside. Once the pasta is drained return to pot and add all ingredients above. Toss. Add dressing and return to heat med-low temp and stir continuously until ingredients are warm. Top with freshly ground pepper and grated cheese before serving.
