Schinkennudeln (Ham & Cheese Pasta)

Let’s take it back a childhood favorite of mine… Schinkennudeln! It’s a ham and cheese pasta and it is truly what my childhood tastes like.

I can’t even begin to describe the memories that Schinkennudeln brings back for me. It was our favorite dinner and my mom is the best at making it. Mine comes out equally as delish but there’s something really special about my mom or omi (grandma) making it for me (also they do the dishes which is an added bonus!). In its simplest form this is a ham and cheese pasta. It’s easy, inexpensive and perfect for a crowd.

All you need are a few things to get the ball rolling. Pasta – duh. I like to use orecchiette because they are like little ears of pasta with an indent that’s perfect for catching bites of ham and cheese so each bite is loaded with plenty of flavor. Ham – naturally. It’s the star of the dish! Frozen Peas – because mom always wanted us to have a few veggies. And some CHEESE, because why not! Trust me when I tell you that you’ve gotta try it!! I mean look at these 2 little girls – tell me they don’t look pumped post-Schinkennudeln!
