This recipe is a keeper! I made this as directed, except I used broccoli in place of Asparagus. The flavors all came together, the smokey flavor of the ham mixed with the sour cream and the Italian cheese coating the noodles, yummy! Oh, I did top with Ritz cracker crumbs instead of chips. Whole family loved this and it didn't last long, they gobbled it up. Now that I know how good this is, I will be making it quite often.
