  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add leek and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add peas and half-and-half and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in ham. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup cooking water. Add pasta to skillet along with cheese and toss to coat, adding cooking water as necessary to moisten. Serve immediately with extra Parmesan on the side.
