Cheesy Ham Pasta

Cheesy Ham Pasta
Cheesy Ham Pasta is a delicious and comforting main dish recipe that uses chopped ham, onion, green bell pepper, and two kinds of cheese sauce. The nacho sauce gives the sauce a bit of a kick.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped ham
  • 1 (17-ounce) bottle double cheddar sauce (Ragu)
  • 1/2 (15-ounce) jar nacho cheese dip
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 (16-ounce) package fettuccine pasta


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add bell pepper and ham; cook and stir 4-5 minutes longer until tender.
Add pasta to water and stir. Then add sauce, cheese dip, and milk to mixture in skillet. I use the milk to rinse out the bottles of sauce so you get it all out. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and simmer while the pasta cooks.
When pasta is done, drain and place on serving plate. Spoon sauce over and serve immediately.
