My husband, Ronald, works long hours and frequently doesn't arrive home until past 7 p.m. This casserole is ideal for those late nights—it's just as tasty after it's been warmed in the microwave. —Barb Marshall, Pickerington, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) egg noodles
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen broccoli cuts
  • 3 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, salt and pepper

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes. Add broccoli and ham; cook until noodles are tender, 5-10 minutes longer.
  2. Drain; return to pan. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted and mixture is heated through.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled noodle mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, gently stirring; add broth or milk if necessary.
