Let's Make It
Bring pasta, water, salsa, ham and pesto to boil in large skillet on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 15 min.
Add vegetables; cook 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Sprinkle with cheese.
To save time, chop the vegetables while the pasta is cooking.
Cool any leftovers, then refrigerate overnight to serve the next day. Or, freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator before reheating.
Prepare using any other bite-size pasta shapes, such as fusilli, rigatoni, farfalle (bow-tie pasta) or penne.
