  Vegetable oil/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Green onions 4 , chopped
  Coarsely chopped tomatoes 4
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced

  Grated parmesan 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

In large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until al dente (tender but firm); drain.
(If sauce isn't ready, rinse pasta under warm water for a few seconds to prevent it sticking together.) Meanwhile, in large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven, heat oil over high heat.
Add onions, tomatoes and garlic; cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until tomatoes are just heated through but still hold their shape.
Stir in rotini, ham (if using), parsley, basil and Parmesan.
Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring gently, for about 2 minutes or until heated through.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
