|You'll need 8 oz pasta (I decided to try a fancy Quinoa pasta but any pasta will do fine), One Onion, One Celery Stalk, Cabbage, Ham, Chicken Broth, Canned White Beans, and Parmesan Cheese.|
|Dice up your Onion and Celery and ad to a warm pan over medium heat with about 2 TBSP of Olive Oil. Saute until softened about 5 minutes. Meanwhile start your pasta and cook according to directions.|
|Chop up your cabbage, you'll need about 3 cups worth, and add it to the skillet. Cook until just wilted, 3-4 minutes.|
|When your pasta is done, drain and set aside. Don't overcook the pasta.|
|Chop up your ham and add to the skillet.|
|Now add your can of White Beans and the Chicken broth into the skillet. Season with Salt & Pepper and cook until everything is heated through 5-7 minutes.|
|Add your noodles into the skillet and stir gently. Taste and adjust the seasoning.|
|Yummy! You want the mixture to be moist but not soupy. If it is too dry add more broth or some water.|
