My family loves this recipe, and it's a great way to use up leftover ham. Although a meal by itself, I often serve it with a tossed salad. —Cathy Neve, Yakima, Washington

"It was okay. Will need some spices to flavor it up a bit."

"I really like this as a base recipe, but then I zip it up a bit by sauteing some finely diced onions and sliced mushrooms in the butter to which I have also added some freshly ground pepper. (Since ham trends to be salty I rarely add salt when I use ham in a recipe.) Then I add the flour and milk and continue with the recipe. I prefer using egg noodles to fettuccine noodles, but that is just personal preference. Either is delicious."

"Rather bland and is very dry when reheated. Needs more seasonings!"

"Easy to make and inexpensive."

"I think what was missing was seasoning (salt & pepper). Even though ham is salty, if you either make it vegetarian (i made a veggie one for my daughter substituting mushrooms) or get a bite without ham, it lacked seasoning. I made sure to season (lightly) at each step (particularly added it to the bechamel- like sauce).

Thanks for a great way to use leftover ham-- definitely a keeper!"
