Top Review by Ginny Ax

4.5 stars... This is super easy and pretty quick for how well it turned out. I made some minor changes to suit my tastes: I only used 1 cup of milk, had to use cr of mushroom soup (it was what I had), and I added an extra cup of cheese & some parmesian cheese as well. I used pre-cubed ham, so all I had to do was cook the pasta and mix everything in the casserole dish. I baked it for 20 minutes, did my taste test, added more cheese, sprinkled with parm cheese and onion topping, and put it back in for 10 more minutes. The end result was a hearty meal and very tasty. Thanks! :)
