For your inspiration, the menu for the last two weeks:


(On sandwich days, if I don't have GF bread handy, I'll have mine on GF crackers, or in a meat roll-up.)

One-Pot Ham and Greens Pasta

This recipe is adapted from Better Homes and Gardens magazine. The original is here.

My mom found hams on sale for $5 a few weeks back, so of course she bought one for everyone. We cut ours up and froze it. When I saw this recipe I ripped it out and put it on the fridge.

This is actually really good. I used gluten free pasta in place of the orechiette.

8 oz gluten free pasta
1 c. diced cooked ham
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
4 c. torn kale leaves
3/4 c. grated parmesan cheese (spring for the fresh stuff)

Cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 c. water

Heat ham & garlic until browned. Stir in pasta, water, kale, and cheese. Cook and stir until heated & the kale starts to wilt.

Makes 1 husband-sized serving, plus 1 normal serving with lunch leftovers.
