3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 cups fresh, shelled peas
4 ounces boiled, unsmoked lean ham, cut into 1/4-inch wide strips
12 ounces penne pasta
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped, fresh Italian parsley
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
2. In a medium skillet, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the onion with a dash of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the peas and cook for 5 minutes or longer, depending on their size and freshness. Add the ham and cook for 2 minutes more.
3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta until it is al dente, about 10 to 12 minutes. Drain. Toss with the remaining olive oil, onion, peas, ham, 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese and 2 tablespoons of the parsley.
4. Divide the pasta among 4 warmed pasta bowls and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan and parsley. Serve immediately.
