Ham and Swiss Pasta Casserole
Here’s a delightfully rich and creamy, all-in-one meal from Julie Jackman in Bountiful, Utah. “My family just loves the easy-to-fix sauce,“ Julie says, “and it’s a great way to use up leftover ham.“ TIP: For a delectable, creamy and comforting side dish, simply eliminate the ham.
