This is much better the 2nd day but is a delicious & quick dinner. I bet it would be good with chicken instead of the ham!

Sooooo good! I love this. Easy to make, easy to clean up. It's nice to find a good recipe that uses something besides chicken or hamburger.

I made this for a pot luck, I used bow tie pasta, vegetable cream cheese

No one liked this in my family - we also had to throw it out because I couldn't stand to watch them gagging on it any longer so I didn't dare serve it again...

Everyone raved about this recipe - even my super picky 11- year old son. He's been begging me to make it again.

Perfect for those nights where I don't feel like doing too much work in the kitchen. Two easy steps steps where i can just throw it all in? Awesome, and there were plenty left over for the hubby to bring to the office next day!
