Ham and Noodle Casserole

It was the very first overcast and cooler day we have had, and I could almost feel fall in the AIR, almost! I spent hours making a months supply of dog food and I was beat! So, I decided to whip up a casserole. I was sick of chicken, pork and the usual so I decided to make it with Ham for a change!

  • 1 lb of ham (I bought a thick slice right from the deli counter)
  • 1 package of No Yolks noodles
  • 2 cans of Cream of Whatever you like soup (I used Chicken and
  • Mushroom)
  • 1/4 cup of mushrooms, fresh, dried or canned
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Peas (do not use canned)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream (I used fat free)
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 1 small jar of Pimento's
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp dried chili flakes
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese, I used Colby Jack
Dice the ham into small chunks

Cook your noodles according to the package direction (cook a bit less than the package says as you will be baking this)

Mix the soups, spices, sour cream and Pimentos, add the chicken stock until you have a loose consistency, you want enough sauce to cover the noodles

Add 1/2 of the shredded cheese, peas, mushrooms, and the ham, mix until well incorporated

Put into a greased baking dish and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or bubbly

Remove from the oven and sprinkle on the remaining cheese

This casserole sounds really tasty! I like using ham in things like this as it adds a tn of flavour.

Mmm, I love those noodles and I love casseroles, especially with mushroom and those cream of something soups. I never would have thought to put ham in it. Every time I think of this dish I want to add steak or ground beef for a stroganoff but I like the changeup here.

Does Martha know what a good mum she has? Probably.

Anyway, your casserole looks tip top.
