"Comforting dish! Works well as a all-in-one dish to be be delivered as a meal. Depending on saltiness of the ham, may need to increase salt/seasoning. Add fresh green onions and top with cheese at last minute. As a volunteer feild editor for Taste of Home I appreciate recipes that try unique twists with quick preparation s."

"I made this with Philly Garden Vegetable spreadable cream cheese and fresh broccoli because that's what I had on hand. I added 4 oz. of plain cream cheese and a cup of carrots based on other reviews. This is a good recipe and it was great as leftovers the next night. I will be making this again soon."

"I'm thinking that cubed chicken breasts (same weight) would also work for this; less saltiness from ham."

"Just made tonight. quick and easy. Good way to use left over ham. Lacked a little flavor, needs something to add zip. Would also maybe double sauce."

"Fast and easy and kids loved it. I used broccoli and carrots, added some garlic and dried onion. Much more flavorful. This is a recipe you can play with and make your own."
