Ham, Noodle and Swiss Cheese Casserole

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by carolinajewel

Trying to use up Easter Ham I threw this together using what I had in the pantry and fridge! Amounts are approximate, feel free to add more or less of any ingredient! Edited to change the size bag of noodles. I think it was an 8 ounce bag not 16 ounce!

Love this recipe! The use of chicken broth gives the cheese sauce a less "bulky" consistency. I doubled this recipe and used cut up steamed broccoli crowns instead of the peas. I also used a combination of half and half and 1% milk to cut down on calories. I had enough for two casseroles, one which I brought to a sick friend and her family loved it! Don't usually like processed foods, but those onion rings on top put this recipe over the top!
