Reviews for Spaghetti Ham Bake
"By far one of the absolute best recipes I have ever made in my life. My husband ate it COLD; he never does that with anything. I used Cream of Celery soup and a lot less ham and other items than called for in the recipe just because that's what I do. I will make this recipe for the rest of my life. Awesome, awesome, awesome."
"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!"
"Editing my review. It should say I cook once a week.!!!!!! recipe is still great"
"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......."
"Easy, tasty and comforting!! I left out the mushrooms because we don't like them - other than that, two of my daughters and I put it together quickly and easily. Very yummy!! And I have another in the freezer that I will just pop in the oven in a few weeks. Doesn't get any better than that!"
