Ham and Pea Pasta

Krista of Krista's Culinary Creations made us this pasta for dinner one night, and it was absolutely delicious. We were dying to have it again. Thanks for the great recipe Krista!

1 cup green peas, fresh or frozen
2 Tbsp salted butter
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup ham, chopped
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 lb linguine, fettucine or other pasta
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese or more to taste

Bring large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. While that cooks melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms and cook 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned. Add ham and cook 1 minute. Stir in peas, cream, salt, and pepper. Turn heat to low; keep warm, stirring occasionally, while pasta is cooking. Drain pasta. Toss pasta with butter mixture. Add Parmesan and toss. Serve immediately.
