Cook the pasta using pack instructions. Drain, run under cold water, and drain again.
Meanwhile, heat the veg oil in a large pan or wok, add the peppers, sweetcorn, peas, garlic and five-spice and stir-fry for a few mins. Add the ham, soy sauce, ¾ of the black bean sauce and the orzo, stir well and cook for 1-2 mins. Stir in the sesame oil and check seasoning.
Heat the remaining black bean sauce in microwave. Tip pasta into a large bowl or a small, clean dustbin or cauldron. Drizzle over remaining sauce and let everyone dig in.
