      Loved this ham mac 'n cheese dish-- a great way to use up that leftover Christmas ham! I added just a little more pasta than the recipe called for to stretch it just a little further. Love the bechamel sauce and think that, altogether, this is an easy, quick way to put a nice, tasty, hot meal on the table. The parmesan cheese was awesome and next time, I would use a little more on the top-- the unexpected flavor it lends to the traditional mac 'n cheese taste was absolute yumminess. I served this alongside Garlic Green Beans. Thank you!

      I wasn't crazy about this the day it was made, but thought it was much better the next day. Thanks for sharing.

      Yummy just like mac and cheese, but feels a tiny bit more sophisticated.
