Garlic and Ham Spaghetti

I had a New Year's Eve party and for the occasion, I purchased a Honey Baked Ham. It was delicious, but after eating ham with leftover mashed potatoes for a few days, it starts to get old!

So, I made Garlic and Ham Spaghetti that I found on AllRecipes a couple years ago. I had only made it once before, but remember liking it, so I gave it another go. It was really tasty! Here's a picture of the finished product:

The original recipe called for mushrooms and olives, both of which I am not crazy about, so I omitted them. Here is the original recipe:

Garlic and Ham Spaghetti

8 ounces spaghetti
5 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
16 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli
1 (6 ounce) can black olives, drained
12 slices ham, chopped


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and set aside.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add garlic, onion, mushrooms, broccoli, olives, and ham. Saute mixture until onions are translucent.

3. In a large bowl toss cooked spaghetti with vegetable mixture.
