Add the pasta to a large pan of boiling water. Bring back to the boil, stir once, then simmer fast, uncovered, for 10-12 mins.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in another pan and cook the garlic over a low setting for 2 mins. Add the peas, mint and stock and bring to the boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 mins until tender but still with a little bite. Drain and mash roughly with a potato masher.

Drain the pasta in a colander. Return to the pan with the pea and ham mixture. Toss together then serve immediately.
