Angel Hair Pasta with Asparagus & Ham

This is such a simple, quick dish to prepare!  Perfect for lunch or makes a light, lovely dinner for a busy weeknight.  This is the perfect Spring meal when Asparagus is in season and fresh!

Angel Hair Pasta
2-3 slices of ham, diced
2-3 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2-3 Tbls butter
4-5 stalks fresh Asparagus, cut in 1/2

Cook pasta according to package instructions.  During the last few minutes of the pasta boiling, add the diced ham and asparagus; finish cooking.  Remove from heat, drain pasta, ham and asparagus; put back in pan and toss with butter. Spoon mixture into large a pasta bowl; dust with course-ground black pepper, Parmesan cheese and crumbled bacon.  Serve immediately.
