Extra creamy, wildly delicious, and super easy is this Mississippi Sin Pasta Recipe is the ultimate comfort food.
This may just look like another cheesy pasta recipe, but No! It’s not ordinary at all! WOW, the flavor I packed into this recipe is phenomenal.
WHAT IS MISSISSIPPI SIN?
It’s a spicy cream cheese-based dip full of ham and cheese. It’s baked in a French bread loaf and served hot. I’m uncertain if this recipe originated in Mississippi or not. However, it is the perfect party appetizer and a favorite dip for tailgating.

I made the crowd-favorite dip into a meal basing it on the dip recipe. Now, whenever I have leftover ham it’s my go-to recipe.
This pasta recipe is very easy to mix together and is ready in less than 30 minutes. If you don’t have leftover ham, don’t fret. You can make this with lunch meat or a ham steak. Both are favorites in our house and I almost always have them on hand.
MS SIN PASTA RECIPE OPTIONS
This is a really quick recipe that can be made on the stovetop. Additionally, you can prep it in the morning before you head out the door. When you get home after a long day, all that’s left to do is pop dinner into the oven to reheat!
- You can also add two cups of steamed broccoli to the recipe.
- I used cheddar cheese since that’s the cheese used in the dip. However, you can use your favorite or whatever you have on hand. Muenster or gruyere would make a nice creamy addition.
- Of course, you can use any shape of pasta. I used what I had on hand.
