This recipe was made for my 2007 Holiday Party featuring an Italian inspired menu. You can read about it and view the additional recipes I made for this event HERE.
water for boiling pasta
Prepare pasta per package directions.
Meanwhile, brown ham in a skillet with oil and transfer to a large bowl. Add peas to bowl and set aside.
Drain pasta when cooked to al dente, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water. Add pasta to the bowl with ham and peas.
Beat the eggs in a small bowl and pour over the hot pasta in the large bowl. Add the reserved water a tablespoon at a time to prevent the dish from being too dry and to give the dish a more creamy texture.
Add shredded cheese to the large bowl and toss to fully combine; serve hot.
