- 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 2 cups thinly sliced celery
- 2 cups chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic, undrained
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 9 no-cook lasagna noodles
- In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, celery, carrots and onion in oil for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add ham and garlic; cook 1-2 minutes longer or until garlic is tender. In a small bowl, combine the flour and cream; stir into ham mixture. Add tomatoes and pepper.
- Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until heated through (sauce will be thin).
- In a small bowl, combine the cheeses. Place three noodles in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; top with a third of the sauce and a third of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers twice.
- Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Let stand for 20 minutes before cutting. Yield: 8-10 servings.

Reviews for Ham 'n' Cheese Lasagna
"I did not have the tomatoes in the can to add. Instead, I added Italian pepper and seasoning. Just a little basil and garlic pepper and it was yummy!"
"I made this for our Easter dinner and loved it! I did lighten it up a bit, though. I substituted half and half for the heavy cream with no detrimental effects! I also left out the mushrooms (yuck). My grandchildren looked at it with suspicion (lasagna is supposed to be red), but the adults enjoyed it."
"I have a picky husband picky 19 month old twins and they all loved this ham lasagna."
