I came up with this simple yet delicious main course when we had some excellent spiral-cut ham on hand. It makes a lovely early Sunday supper, and is easily adaptable to variations in ingredients. Try it with a bit of fresh rosemary or tarragon in lieu of the parsley. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

this was very good, although i did omit the canned soup and cornstarch. the sauce thickens quite well without it. i used a blend of gruyere and cheddar, this makes a filling 1 dish meal.
