Pasta with a Ham, Broccoli and a Creamy Mustard Sauce

Another quick recipe, I suppose that is the point of this blog... Serve with garlic bread for a filling meal.


  • Your Pasta of choice - Fresh or Dried
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Half a head of Broccoli cut into small florets
  • 300ml of Double Cream
  • 2 tablespoons of English Mustard
  • 4 slices of thick Ham
  • 1 onion
  • 140g of Cheddar Cheese - grated
  • Salt and Pepper

Serves 4


Take the broccoli and add it to a pan of boiling water. Simmer for four minutes. Drain and put to one side.

Start the dried pasta cooking (if using). If you are using fresh then get your big pan of water boiling in readiness.

Saute the onions for five minutes. Add the crushed garlic and continue cooking for a further minute. 

Start the fresh pasta cooking. Meanwhile, add the diced ham and cook for a minute. Finally add the cream and mustard stirring continuously. Once the mixture has almost reached the boil add the cooked pasta. Stir so that all the pasta is covered with the sauce.

Stir in the grated cheddar cheese, season and serve.
