This can easily be a Vegetarian dish by leaving out the ham and even possibly vegan by leaving out the cheese.

It can also be turned into a bake by placing it into a large shallow casserole dish once it is cooked, stir together, then cover with bread crumbs & a little grated cheese. Bake in moderate oven or grill until a golden brown.

I have discovered that Penne and fettucine are really the only suitable pasta for this dish as it stays together better when cooking in the sauce.

Haloumi can be substituted with 120g of firm feta cheese, cubed.
