"This is a favorite dish of mine for leftover ham. I like to use a mix of parmesan and white cheddar or you can use a monterey jack cheese if you prefer that, but it is just creamy and comforting. I love to bake a ham once a month. I cut it up and freeze and that way I always have a quick meal waiting to be put together. So many people only cook ham on holidays, but it is a great resource and inexpensive. Give this a try for a nice way to use your leftovers and good comfort food on a chilly night."

"Really good ham casserole. Even my fussy husband enjoyed it. I added some yellow bell pepper because I had a half left in the fridge and it added some nice colour. I also replaced the green onion with diced leeks and some red onion (again trying to clean out the fridge). Appreciated the caution on the salt. I added none and it was perfect. The recipe made enough for 2 casseroles. I love it when I can cook once and eat twice!"
"Delicious. DW loved the sauce and kept commenting about the wonderful smell while baking. Thanks for the recipe."
"A very hearty and tasty ham casserole!! I had some left over smoked ham in the freezer that I wanted to use up. This casserole was the perfect dish for that. The flavor and texture was very delicious! I will be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"Made this recipe "as is" except used Fettuccine noodles because I had on them hand. Very tasty recipe and the family enjoyed it very much. Great flavor and I loved the white cheddar in the recipe."
"I made this per the instructions. This is absolutely delicious!!"
"This turned out really well! Used leftover ham from freezer. Have a little leftover to freeze for future."
"Very versatile recipe. I used spaghetti, no mushrooms, had to use dehydrated onions, broccoli and white wine. I refused to go to the store and was using what I had on hand. I loved how easy it was to put together and left for my DD to bake while I was at work. The flavors were great together and a great way to use up leftovers. Thanks for posting SC."
"I've made something really pretty similar over the years so I adapted this recipe to match my families likes such as omitting the mushroom and using penne pasta. This recipe is different in one particular way which I really appreciate and had not thought of before. Instead of making a roux milk/cream, it uses chicken stock as the base and adds just a splash of cream. I just love that!"
"Excellent. Had a bag of frozen diced baked ham in the freezer and didn't know what to do with it. This was perfect. I made it as directed also added some garlic powder.... Thanks for posting another winner Sarasota!!"
"I made this tonight for dinner using some leftover ham. I didn't have linguine so I used spaghetti and green onions in place of a regular onion. I used 5% half and half in place of the heavy cream and 1 cup of fresh parmesan cheese (1/2 for the mixture and 1/2 sprinkled on top) and skipped the other cheese. I think I only had enough sherry to make 2 tbsp so that is all the casserole got. My family gave this two thumbs up. I froze the rest of the ham to make this dish again. Thanks for posting."
