Ham and Herb Sauce for Pasta Recipe

This recipe will make enough sauce for use with 1-1/2 pounds of your favorite pasta. Serves 6.

3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 lb. chopped ham
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 t. dried marjoram
1/4 t. dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
1-1/2 lbs. pasta

V.S.P. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the ham and garlic and sauté very gently, without browning, for 4 or 5 minutes. Add all the herbs, stir well and sauté for 2 or 3 minutes more and turn off the heat. Let the herbs steep in the oil while the pasta is cooking.

Cook the pasta, drain it and place in a hot serving dish and pour sauce over it. Toss thoroughly and serve immediately.
