Today’s ham recipe is a combination of ham and pasta. It all gets coating in a nice and creamy sauce made using butter, flour, milk and cheese.
There are peas added in there too, for nutrition and color. Only a few seasonings are needed to add in there. Then the whole thing gets baked in the oven with buttery toasted bread crumbs on top.
This is another great option to make using ham. Definitely one I will be making many times in the future.
