Creamy Shells with Broccoli and Ham

Leftover ham? Perfect for this creamy parmesan macaroni shells with broccoli. This is a recipe from when my girls were young. An amazing rich-tasting meal and so easy to prepare. This recipe is great when you have left-over ham.

1 package (1 lb) medium-size macaroni shells
1/2 lb cooked ham
1 package (10 oz.) frozen broccoli spears, thawed
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook macaroni shells in boiling, salted water according to package directions. Cut ham into thin slices. Cut broccoli into 1/2 inch pieces. Saute garlic, ham, and broccoli in butter in a large skillet until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in heavy cream. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes. Stir in cheese. Lower heat and cook, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted. Drain shells and toss with sauce. Serves 6-8
