Simple and good. I made some alterations to the recipe. Added salt and pepper based on the other reviews. Also mixed onions and garlic (cooked quickly in a fry pan) into the c/chicken mix and substituted 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk (it's what I had).

Then I threw in a can of Ortega, green Chilis (the little can) into the soup mix too.

I added mixed vegetables while my wife said, "You're adding more stuff?! You're wrecking it... Blah, blah, blah." ... But it was Great. Thanks.

Very tasty and a nice way to use up leftover ham. I used Monterey Jack cheese in place of cheddar. I served with biscuits and steamed peas for a quick evening meal.

A big hit with left over ham. Used 1/2 a 12 oz pkg of egg noodles and added about 1.5 c frozen broccoli cuts to cook with the noodles. Colby Jack cheese.

A good and solid every day meal for the family, liked by both adults and kids and great way to use left over ham. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken, as I only had mushroom. Next time I will make it with chicken. Still very good. I did not have egg noodles so I substituted the noodles with penne pasta which also worked well.

Good basic starter but, had to spice it up and add veggie. Cooked frozen peas with the noodles. Added 1 tbsp. Worcestershire to the liquid mix. Then added liberal amount of Lawry's Garlic Pepper to top of each layer! Wife loved it.

OMG, so good. I added 1/2 pound of fried bacon cut into bite size pieces and mixed it with the ham. Also added lots of pepper and a dash of salt. Otherwise followed the recipe. So easy, so tasty.

My son called this a grown-up mac and cheese. The next day I tried it with cream of mushroom soup, but the cream of chicken is for sure better.

Needed a recipe for leftover ham. Made this but also added sautéed onions and mushrooms and some frozen peas cause I had them. This is one of those "I can eat this until it comes out of my ears" recipes. My husband said it was tasty and he doesn't even like ham! Will definitely make again!

I made this for my toddler. I used pre-diced ham (the chunks are too big for her) and instead of using cream of chicken soup I made it with cream of mushroom soup. I added diced onions as well. All in all a great dish and reminded me of scalloped potatoes and ham but with noodles. Thanks for the great recipe!

yum. per previous suggestions I sauteed onions, garlic and celery together and added that to the ham. I also tossed frozen peas into the pot of noodles just before they finished cooking. The peas kept their color beautifully.
