Creamy Ham Spaghetti

This, my friends, is comfort food! This is my adaptation of a recipe originally by The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. Her original recipe calls for chicken instead of ham, which is also good. This is very like a tetrazzini. I have frozen this before baking, then thawed and baked with good results.

I had some left over smoked ham that I used in this dish, which gave it a very nice flavor along with the creamy cheesy texture of the casserole. I added a bit of onion and parsley for personal taste, and I also used fettuccine noodles. I baked it covered because we like a creamy cheese texture instead of browned. This is a tasty versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Very tasty! I prepared the casserole and baked it for 15 minutes, refrigerated it overnight, and reheated it the next day, and I look forward to the leftovers! I would rename this Ham Tetrazzini! Made for Spring PAC 2011 ~
