My husband, Ronald, works long hours and frequently won't arrive home until past 7 p.m. But this casserole is still tasty after it's been warmed in the microwave. —Barb Marshall, Pickerington, Ohio

"I left out the ham to have a vegetarian meal. I mostly eyeballed the sauce to determine the amounts and it turned out very creamy. I did mix the sauce ingredients separately and then added them to the pasta. I also added basil with the other seasonings. I used fresh broccoli and cooked it before adding it to the pasta and I used less butter than called for. It was all very good."

"I halved the recipe because there's only 2 of us. I also, of course, did some tweaking. I doubled the Parmesan and fat-free half-and-half. I used less butter and more garlic, salt and pepper. Then, to make it creamier, I used 1/2 cup of plain yogurt. Next time, I think I'll use an Italian blend of shredded cheese instead of mozzarella because it's too stringy. But I like the combination of ingredients and will definitely make it again."

"Frankly, I would triple the sauce ingredients and mix them separately in a bowel, then add. The recommendations to saute the ham with onion and seasonings before adding are good too. Otherwise, a good comfort food dish and a way of using leftover ham."

"Whole Family thought this was very good. I did saute the hame and seasonings with some onion. Then added to the rest. Really good but I would double the sauce to make creamier."

"So good! Whole family liked it. I used fresh broccoli-steamed. Fried 1/4 cup onion in some butter, added ham (instead of boiling) added a clove of garlic(instead of powder). Only had two cups of ham otherwise everything was the same and was great!"

"Very good and very simple. I used less mozzarella cheese, less butter, and skim milk rather than half and half to make it a little healthier."
