Pasta with Ham & Green Beans for dinner

I do not know about you, but we certainly did have some ham left from Easter Sunday.  It was not really that much, since we got a smaller ham but still enough for another dinner.  We do not have any potatoes left and we certainly needed a little different meal so this is when this dish came into being....

It was a huge success and super easy
