I love meals like this one. It was literally pulled together from stuff that I had in my fridge and pantry one week night when this momma just didn’t feel like cooking. Yep, even food bloggers want to avoid the kitchens from time to time 😉 Pasta was buy one get free, the ham was leftover from a batch of breakfast egg muffins, the alfredo sauce is a pantry staple and cheese is never, never in short supply. I decided to try a one pot meal and this skillet version was a rousing success!

Skillet Ham & Cheese Alfredo goes from stove top to table top in minutes! With just one skillet and a few ingredients, this easy meal will be a weeknight life saver!

You are going to need a pretty good sized skillet for this recipe. I have this set of Calphalon cookware. (affiliate link) These pans are LIFE. If it is possible to love inanimate objects, then I am in full on 7th grade pink puffy heart love with these pans. Anyway … I used the 12 inch omelette pan for this skillet meal.

First, add two cups of diced ham to the skillet.

Then, add 16 oz. of your favorite dry pasta right on top of the ham. I used rotini but you could use elbow noodles, ziti, penne, mini bow tie pasta or any other similar sized pasta.

Rotini pasta - added right to the skillet - makes this easy Skillet Ham & Cheese Alfredo super simple!

Next, pour one jar of your favorite alfredo sauce into the skillet.

Fill the jar halfway with milk and the rest of the way with water. Pour the liquid into the skillet. Stir everything together – be careful since the skillet will be pretty full – and cook over medium/medium high heat.

Stir frequently and cook until the pasta is fork tender. You can add a splash or two more of milk if it seems to need a little more cooking liquid. Add a few handfuls of shredded cheese, top the pasta with some fresh parsley and a few cracks of fresh ground black pepper and dinner is served!!

With just a few basic ingredients from your kitchen, this Skillet Ham & Cheese Alfredo comes together quickly! Who can resist pasta and cheese?!

This creamy pan of Skillet Ham & Cheese Alfredo was a weeknight life saver! I changed out of my work clothes, put my hair up in a bun (I don’t think my neighbors have ever seen my hair down, ha ha) and made dinner in about 20 minutes. Winning!

Skillet Ham & Cheese Alfredo is a simple, delicious easy week night meal!

  1. Love any kind of pasta dish and this one looks so delicious and easy to make!!! Planning to make it for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for sharing:)

  2. Thank you so much. I just made this tonight with the leftover ham from dinner last night. It was awesome.

  3. I used a 22oz jar of Alfredo sauce and added 2 cups of milk and still was dry. When I put the leftovers in a dish I poured some water over it so it’s moist when I reheat it. I would use half of the noodles next time and no cheese. It really didn’t need it.
