I was surprised by how much my husband - a foodie - liked this recipe. I eliminated the onions because I can't eat them, and substituted a lot of broccoli for the small amount of green peppers. It was a great way to use up ham and I think it would be an excellent way to get kids to eat their vegetables. I would imagine you could use chicken instead of ham or peas instead of peppers or broccoli and have good results.

I had cooked a ham and was looking for a recipe to use the leftover ham. Tried this recipe and found it to be very good. You definitely need to use the onions and green pepper in the sauce. I had leftover peas and added them to the sauce. Definitely a do again.

I would rate this 3 stars, but since my husband would not allow me to put onions in (he hates them...) or green pepper I will give this an extra star assuming it would have been better with at least the onions included! We found this to be a bit too bland. Just not enough flavor. Also, I personally thought it would have been better without quite so much ham, but my youngest son wouldn't agree since all he ate out of the casserole was the ham! Since I did not use onion or green pepper, I cut the butter down to 3 tablespoons and that seemed to work out fine. Also probably ended up using more than 3/4 cup cheese in order to better please my husband and sons! All-in-all not a bad meal, but not necessarily well-liked enough by my family to make again.
