A regular at our house

Pretty tired tonight and looking for a quick meal.  Therefore no time to find and cook something new.  Pasta is one of the fall back positions at our house and the following is one of the quick sauces we cook quite regularly.

Cook a couple of small heads of broccoli and chop roughly.  Heat some olive oil and butter in a pan.  Add a handful of chopped ham and garlic and chile to taste.  After a few minutes add a couple of good handfuls of peas.  Start cooking pasta of choice – we use Barilla Fromaggi Tortellini.  Add broccoli to pea and ham.  A few minutes before pasta is ready add 200ml of cream (add milk also if necessary to achieve desired consistency).  When pasta is ready toss through sauce and a handful of chopped mint.
