Tomato and Ham Pasta

This is an adaptation to one of Alison Holst's recipe for Friday Night Pasta that we have had over the years.
The original recipe calls for bacon but I don't buy it much and we always have ham as Harry uses it for sandwiches, so I use this instead.

1 tsp olive oil 
1 onion diced
50g sandwich ham
1 tsp flour

Mixed herbs (dried about 1/2 tsp; fresh about 1 dsp) 
440gr diced tomatoes in juice
Cream cheese 100gr
Pasta spirals

Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Heat a large frying pan.
Once the water in the pot is simmering add pasta and salt to taste.
Add a few drops of oil to the pasta when you add it to the water so it doesn't stick.
Cook while making sauce.
Add olive oil to the pan and soften the onion in it.
Add diced ham and cook a little.
Sprinkle in flour and brown. (about 5 mins)
Stir in tinned tomatoes and mixed herbs and bring to boil.
Turn off the heat and add the cream cheese and squash into sauce but don't allow to cook.
Drain pasta and add to sauce.
Serve with a sprinkling of chopped parsley
