This recipe was excellent! I just made a few of modifications to it though. I added low sodium broth since ham tends to be a bit salty anyway. I added 1 heaping tsp. minced garlic when sauteing the onions & mushrooms. I added 1 c. petite green peas when adding the sauce, ham & pimentos. And lastly, I didn't have any breadcrumbs in my pantry, so I cubed 4-5 slices of bread (heels/ends work best) and tossed with 1/2 stick melted butter and sprinkled over top with the parmesan cheese. I will definately make this again! Thanks Weeezer0421!

This was so yummy! I have tried many tetrazzini recipes over the years, and the sauce either comes out too thick or too thin. This is the perfect sauce! I added some chopped bell pepper to the saute mixture and some sliced black olives at the end - excellent! This is great for all your leftover ham, chicken or turkey - enjoy!

Thought it would be too cheesy? I was wrong. Always trying to find recipes for leftover ham. This was great. We do not like mushrooms so we added extra onions and garlic. Also did not use breadcrumbs or bake in the oven. Used cheddar and marble jack mix. Excellent. We will try many variations of this recipe.

I made this recipe almost as is but did add garlic to the onion and mushroom saute. I also added a tad more milk in lieu of some of the broth since the cans of broth are just short of 2 cups at 14.5 oz. I would also reduce the amount of by 1 TBSP or so. It was really delicious and super comforting on this cold, windy night. My 17 month old, 3 year old and husband just gobbled it up. They said to add it to the rotation.

Made exactly as written. It's a hit and will be made whenever I have leftover ham. It is lovely to find a recipe that doesn't use canned mushroom soup as a base!

This was classic comfort food, and so delicious. I made a few changes to accommodate what I had (and didn't have) on hand. Used whole wheat fusilli (a whole lot better than spaghetti anyway), two cloves of minced garlic with the onions and 'shrooms, Better Than Bullion instead of stock, about a cup of frozen peas and carrots instead of pimentos, and Panko for the top. I added the peas and carrots in the last couple of minutes of the simmer. Truth is, the sauce is a fine blank slate for just about whatever you want to add. Use what's on hand and you'll have a great, family-pleasing entree.
