Cheesy Ham ‘n’ Noodles

"I love to prepare this comforting dish to use up leftover ham," says Renee Schwebach from Dumont, Minnesota. "Peas add color and flavor."

    We loved this! Only changes I made was that I sauteed the ham in a pan with some butter, a little bit of garlic powder and chopped onions before adding to the noodles. We didn't have any frozen peas, so I used frozen country blend vegetables instead (carrots, corn, green beans). Didn't have any problems with the cook time, 30 mins was perfect. Will definitely make again!

    This was pretty awful. Cooking times were too long, rendering the noodles mush, and there were no spices/seasonings to impart some flavor...parsley alone just won't do it. Also, prep time was way too long for such a simple casserole (much longer than recipe states). I'll stick to my tried-and-true recipe for cheesy tuna or ham casseroles like this, thanks.

    RE:Cheesy Ham 'n' NoodlesI have a similar recipe except I use a can of any cream soup and a half soup can of milk. We vary our recipe with chopped green pepper and onions instead of the peas. If you cook the onion and green pepper in a little water in the micro, you can put the casserole in the micro for 10 minutes instead of using the oven.mchristensen

    A little too dry for our taste. Good tasting, just would add a little more liquid next time.
