I felt so proud when I created this recipe, which my husband loved! Leftover ham, convenient cooking creme and garlic-herb seasoning make this pasta toss so delicious. —Betsy Howard, Saint Louis, Missouri

"This was a wonderful way to use leftover ham! I increased the recipe by doubling the pasta, soup, and milk (1 cup milk, 1 cup half and half) and added an extra cup of diced ham. I used 8 ounces of regular cream cheese instead of the cooking creme and sauteed fresh minced garlic and onion in place of the garlic-herb seasoning blend. I had only cheddar cheese so used that and mixed one cup into the pasta and sprinkled one cup on top of the casserole. The sauce was delicious, flavorful and silky..... and I will definitely make this again!"

"This was wonderful! Our grocery did not have Philadelphia Cooking Creme so I just used Whipped Original Cream Cheese and it worked great. I made this with leftover ham from New Years but I may try it with chicken. I am kind of hesitant because I think it might not have enough flavor. This recipe is definitely a Keeper! Thanks for sharing Betsy."

"Great recipe to use up leftover ham. I added broccoli, a small can of mushrooms and red pepper flakes for extra flavor. Will definitely make again!"
