Since you have ham in the main dish & serving a salad...
Capellini or angel hair with oil/garlic (aglio olio), and sprinkle w fresh parlsey. You could add some sauteed shrooms.
Pasta & pesto (basil or sun-dried tomato)
Pasta w fresh tomato sauce - diced tomatoes, fresh basil & garlic(a light sprinkle of fresh grated parm, if desired)
Parslied/buttered egg noodles w S&P
Lemon Parsley roasted (or boiled) red potatoes
Penne and zuchinni (as a side, I would use a thin spaghetti/pasta) - try a search here for vyapti's recipe.
