I can't believe I haven't rated this, we love this dish. I do use Smart Balance and fat free half & half, but that is the only changes I make. Great dish, love the smoky ham combined with the tomato and peppers.

Oh my goodness! My hubby about flipped when he tasted this. He gave it 2nd place (only to lasanga) and quickly ate up a 2nd and 3rd helping. I did make a few changes: I added red and yellow bell peppers, I used poultry seasoning and salt and pepper while chicken simmered, and I used 1 cup non-fat evaporated milk mixed with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch instead of the cream. Fantastic!

I made this for our very picky 4 year old and was quite pleased that he ate all that I gave him. I did add some small broccoli trees and had to use bow-tie noodles because that was all I had on hand. Thank you for a super quick and easy meal!
