Anna: The spinach was a guest ingredient, but I actually think it made the dish.
Peter: This was good. I liked the fact it was a small pasta. The ham was a change from the usual pasta we have. It was like a luxury macaroni cheese. With vegetables.
Anna: I thought it reminded me of a carbonara actually. The salty ham and the cream and the parmesan. It was so quick and easy we’ll definitely have this again I think.
Peter: You could probably adjust the vegetables for whatever is in season.
Anna: I’d do it just with the ham and spinach. Angela did miss one trick with this recipe. She instructs you to cook the asparagus separately to the macaroni, when in reality you can do it in the same pot at the same time, and just take it out after a couple of minutes. One pot. Time saved. Simples.
