A friend surprised me with a ham on Easter, so I threw together this yummy meal.

Glaze:

1/2 c. maple syrup

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

1 large can crushed pineapple in juice, drained reserving juice

Put pineapple in the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish, place ham cut side down on top of pineapple, and pour reserved juice over ham.

Cook ham according to package directions.   I did mine tented with foil for about an hour at 300 F before removing the foil and putting on the glaze.  Then I poured the mixture of maple syrup, brown sugar and mustard over ham and raised the temperature to 400 F.

After putting glaze on ham, cut up zucchini into cubes and toss with salt, pepper, and olive oil to taste.  Do the same with the cubed butternut squash.

Spread vegetables on two small baking sheets and when you remove the ham from the oven, pop them in.  Lower the temperature to 325.  They will take about 20 minutes.

Put water on to boil for spaghetti.  Add minced garlic and salt to water.

The veggies and spaghetti were all done almost at the same time.

Toss the drained spaghetti with a little butter, and then toss with the zucchini and squash.  I kept them separate because I have a finicky eater who hates squash!
