    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Rotini pasta may be used in place of penne, prep time does not include cooking the pasta --- if desired sprinkle 1-2 cups grated cheddar cheese on the last 3 minutes of baking time --- this is *very* good!

      I tried this since it sounded kid-friendly, and it was! My kids snarfed it up and had seconds and thirds. I tweaked it a little since I am going wheat-free. You wouldn't have known it. I substituted brown rice penne and gluten free flour mix. Make sure to cook the pasta al-dente to keep it from getting mushy while baking. I used Hodgson Mill Multi Purpose GF Baking Mix in place of the flour. Also stirred in frozen peas & carrots at the same time as the ham.

      I substituted 2 Tbsp dried chopped onion for the fresh since kids don't notice the onion pieces that way...just added them with the dried seasonings. Left out the cayenne. Also threw in a dash of ground celery seed, dried parsley, paprika, and garlic & onion powder. Delish!

      I really enjoyed this. I did add some steamed broccoli. The only downside was that it was super spicy. I usually like my food extra spicy but apparently it was too much for me. Next time I'll definitely lower the amount of both cayenne and black pepper. And there will be a next time! :)
