At a glance
5 oz. spaghetti
1/6 head green cabbage, cut into bite-size pieces
3 oz. cream cheese, cut or torn into small cubes
3 oz. sliced cured ham, sliced into bite-size pieces
2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
1/8 tsp. cracked black pepper
Salt to taste
Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water as the pkg. directs. Three minutes before pasta is done, add cabbage to the same pot. Drain pasta and cabbage, reserving 2 tbsp. cooking liquid. Meanwhile, place cream cheese, ham, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper in a large microwavable bowl. Microwave until cream cheese melts, stirring once or twice with a whisk in the way. Toss cooked pasta and cabbage with the cream cheese mixture. If the mixture is too thick, add reserving cooking liquid and season with salt.
