PASTA WITH CHERRY TOMATOES, PEAS, HAM AND MUSHROOMS




Ingredients for 4 people:

350 g short pasta (like penne or fusilli)
150 g honey roasted ham
150 g mushrooms
100 g peas
200 g cherry tomatoes
30 g grated Parmesan
1 slice of onion
Olive oil
Parsley
Salt and pepper


Heat the oven to 200°C.

While the pasta is cooking, fry lightly some finely chopped onion in olive oil and add the mushrooms that you have previously washed and cleaned. Cook for five minutes. In another saucepan fry the rest of the onion in olive oil adding the peas and the cherry tomatoes cut in halves. Add salt and pepper and cook for about 15 minutes.  As soon as the peas are cooked, add the mushrooms and the chopped parsley to the sauce. Let it simmer for other 5 minutes. In the meantime cut the ham into small pieces. 
Cook the pasta 1 minute less than what advised on the package; drain it and put it in an oven dish. Add 2/3 of the sauce, mix well and  add the rest of the sauce and the grated Parmesan on top. Drizzle with some olive oil and put in the oven for15 minutes.
