This recipe is a Frick family favorite. It found its way into the family back when Mark went to visit his sister in England, and she made it for him. You can pretty much guarantee that at any major multi-day holiday get together, this dish will make an appearance because it's easy to make, and its a hit with everyone, picky eaters included.
The variation I used for this batch was substituting regular Penne pasta for Mini Penne (sounds like the secretary from a Bond movie: Moneypenney! Okay, stay with me people... I'm not crazy... as I chuckle over my own joke.) I also used the Mini Penne because I hate having to cut everything up all the time for small toddler fingers.
After starting to eat his portion, Mr. Leighton turned into Ponyo (who loved ham and would eat the ham out of all of the sandwiches) as he started picking out all of the ham and demanding the ham from our plates too, even snatching pieces of ham off my plate that I didn't even see. After I cut the ham addict off, he finally proceeded to eat his noodles...
