      Absolutely fantastic. Another thing to do is to cook it using bacon instead of ham. But either way, it's fantastic.

      I loved it! I'm on a low-FODMAP diet so I had to make a few substitutions: brown rice macaroni pasta; Finlandia lactose-free swiss cheese slices broken into small pieces; lactose-free, plain kefir in place of whole milk; and gluten-free flour. Note:The kefir and gf flour were very thick, so I added a little bit of water to thin it out. Lastly, I omitted the green peas which are no-no on the low FODMAP diet.

      Flavors were yummy. Brought back memories of croque monsieurs. I may experiment and try adding a little mayonnaise and smidgeon of dijon mustard next time. I will definitely be making this again.

      YUMMY! I took it to a pot-luck dinner and it was a huge hit. Made a few changes: added sauteed onion (as Grammy Bunny suggested) and doubled the ham. I also mixed the Parmesan with 1/2 stack saltines (crushed) and 1/4 c. melted butter. I spread this topping on 10 minutes prior to taking it out of the oven. Will make this, again! NOTE: Prep was more like an hour.
