Ham and Noodle Bake
from: Retro Ranch..A Roundup of Classic Cowboy Cookin'
This is one of Morgan's favoritest dishes ever!!! She ate 3 helpings of this and 2 helpings of Cesar Salad.
1 1/2 cups cooked ham, cubed
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/8 tsp thyme (i don't like thyme... i omit this)
2 tbs butter
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup of water
1/4 tsp pepper
1 package of penne noodles (the recipe calls for only 2 cups, but we use the entire package)
1 cup cooked green beans (ok...i just use a can of french style drained)
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese ( or a little more)
Preheat oven to 350. Cook the noodles according to package. Drain and set aside. In pot brown ham with butter, onion, and thyme (if you are using it). Add the remaining ingredients, except the cheese. Stir until combined and pour into a casserole dish, top with cheese. Bake 350 for 30 minutes. Not a baked cheese person... bake then top with cheese and place back in oven until cheese melts.
