Makeover Linguine with Ham & Swiss Cheese Recipe

This rich linguine casserole recipe eliminates nearly half the saturated fat from the original—but keeps the creamy texture and distinctive Swiss cheese flavor. —Mike Tchou, Pepper Pike, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 ounces uncooked whole wheat linguine, broken in half
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1-3/4 cups (7 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, finely chopped


  • 1. Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the ham, 1-1/2 cups cheese, soup, sour cream, onion and green pepper. Drain pasta; add to ham mixture and stir to coat.
  • 2. Transfer to a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.

"Very easy but this was just ok. It is not something I will make again but would suggest adding peas and more seasoning."

"The only change I made was using fat free sour cream. It turned out well and was very creamy. Next time I make it, I think I will try peas instead of green pepper."
