White Cheddar Shells with Broccoli and Ham

Another family favorite, I used to make this recipe ALL the time back in my single days. It was an easy recipe but oh so comforting. I've made some changes over the year to make it healthier and ww friendly but it is still delicious and a great way to get your kiddos to eat their veggies!

White Cheddar Shells with Broccoli and Ham
Serves 6
Cal 239, Carbs 32, Fat 8.1, Fiber 2.2, Protein 17.8

12 oz. shell pasta cooked to al dente
2 cups chopped broccoli
1 cup chopped ham
1 1/2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese (I used cabot reduced fat)
2 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
1 cup fat free milk
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt

In a large skillet stir together milk and cream cheese and bring to a light boil over medium heat. Add in the salt and garlic powder and stir for 5 minutes, or until thick and bubbly. Slowly whisk in half of the cheese. Once melted, stir in the cooked pasta, ham, and broccoli. Add remaining cheese, cover and turn heat to low. Cook for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
