Ham, Asparagus, and Pasta Casserole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Felix4067

I have no idea where this came from, but I'm pretty sure I tweaked it from some cookbook or another. This is not only easy, it's incredibly tasty. Not too heavy, and doesn't take long in the oven so it's not bad for a summertime casserole.

This was really good. I made it twice now, the second time I was in a pinch and subsituted turkey ham and canned asparagus and it was still great. I used a little less of the dried thyme the second time around too. But all in all, super fast and very tasty! Thanks!!
