  • 8 Ounces spaghetti
  • 2 Cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 Pound ham, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 10-ounce container light Alfredo sauce
  • 1/4 Teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 Cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
  • Freshly grated pepper, to taste

Directions

Cook spaghetti in a 5-quart saucepan according to the package directions. Add the broccoli florets 2 minutes before spaghetti is al dente. (Use the cooking time given on the spaghetti package as a guideline.) Drain and keep warm.
