Delicious!! We substituted chicken for ham and corn for the peas, and came out great. This is definitely one we will make again

LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! We've made it a few times now and really enjoy it. It's mild enough to give to my 9 month old (and easy for him to eat) yet flavorful enough for us all to appreciate it.

Great recipe! I keep chopped ham in the freezer so this was super easy on a busy weeknight. Simple flavors even the kids enjoyed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was good, basically a grown up mac-n-cheese. I didn't have a shallot so I used 1/4 cup of minced onion, and I used whole wheat orzo. I served the peas on the side since all I had was canned peas and I didn't want them to break apart in the pasta. I halfed the recipe and still got 4 good size servings out of it.

Yum! a nice creamy pasta dish. We only made 1/2 a batch because I didn't have enough orzo. But I used full amounts of peas & ham. Served with salad. Cheers KelBel

Oh so easy and oh so delicious! Made a half batch for me and the grandbabies (for whom I was baby sitting) and we gobbled it right up. A nice flavor and mild enough for toddlers. The grownups didn't want to leave to go out for dinner when they smelled the aroma when I uncovered it to serve. I used fat free half-and-half and didn't need to use any reserved liquid. It was perfect just as it was. Will definitely be making this again. Yummy!
