Ham & Pea Pasta

I stole this picture (and recipe) from Krista - of Krista's Culinary Creations. It was quick and yummy!
1 cup frozen green peas

2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 cup turkey ham, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 lb linguine, fettucine or other long pasta (I used cavatappi - the spirals)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese or more to taste (I'm always liberal with cheese!)
Bring large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. While that cooks melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms and cook 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned. Add ham and cook 1 minute. Stir in peas, cream, salt, and pepper. Turn heat to low; keep warm, stirring occasionally, while pasta is cooking. Add Parmesan and toss. Serve immediately.
