Florets and Ham Fettuccine



Florets and Ham Fettuccine, 



Many years ago, but I mean many ! my mom discover Flat Spinach Noodles, she have seen them I think in a magazine at the Dr.'s office where she used to work. She bought a couple lbs, and the recipe called for ham and broccoli, I remember that it was something so different and delicious. Yesterday when I went shopping I found a Spinach Pasta, and I been dying to use the multi-color cauliflowers and broccoli, I got today some left over Spiral Ham at church and when I got home it did not took me to much to put 2 + 2 together, and I have recreated my mom's pasta. Hope you enjoy, as much as I have, I got a 100% approval from the kiddo! who wants more pasta later today. I can't wait to teach this in classes, I think I will specially feature this on one of the kids classes.
