"My sister passed along the recipe for this convenient casserole," says Mary Killion of Hermiston, Oregon. "I appreciate being able to freeze one pan for a hectic day. The generous portions are bound to feed a hungry family or an extra mouth or two that show up at your table."

"We really enjoyed this recipe although I did make a few changes. I halved the recipe and used 7 oz penne instead of spaghetti. Also added a bunch of broccoli florettes the last few minutes of cooking the pasta. I used Panko crumbs in place of bread crumbs for the topping. The onions were still very crunchy so in the future I will sauté them before adding. In order to bake evenly I did use a larger baking dish. The added vegetables increased the volume. This is a keeper. Thanks Mary for the recipe."

"It's hard to find good recipes to use left over ham in other than potato dishes. This one is a keeper, all 3 of my kids and my "pickest eater ever" husband loved this! Thank you for sharing, it was surprisingly very good!"

"I once cook for a week for a needy family of 7. It's hard to find recipes that are easy to double. They stated this was one of the best meals I've made in the year of cooking for them. My hubby wants it made again and again. The only change I did was for the bread crumbs I used croutons that I crumbled. Thanks again!"

"This recipe is so good! My family loved it - and they are very picky! I also placed in water chestnuts to give it some more crunch! This is a perfect dish for those picky kid eaters. MMMMMmmmmmmmm......."
