Tasty Tuesday-Ham Casserole and Recipe Party Link-Up!


Since beginning my blog I have always reserved Tuesdays for recipe sharing.  I've gotten to link up with other amazing recipe party link-ups and meet other people and find new recipes, and I've loved it all so much!  So I finally decided it was time to begin my own recipe party!  I am so excited to announce that the Tasty Tuesday Recipe Party begins here today!  I truly hope I'm able to help you all gain blog exposure like those that helped me.  I do ask to please link up recipes only!  I will be pinning them on my Tasty Tuesday Party page on Pinterest that you can find here, and I will also be featuring a few of my favorite each week.  I would love to have you follow me but that is not a requirement, however if you do please let me know in the comments so that I can follow you as well!  I do require a link back to this party or grab the party button!  Thank you for linking up!!!  On to the recipe this week.....

If you love casseroles and have leftover ham like we do around here, I've got the perfect recipe for you today.  We always get such a large piece of ham and by the time we've had our 3rd set of leftovers we are all ham-ed out.  This is the perfect solution because it's a whole new dish and doesn't feel like leftovers at all!  In my recipe I am listing everything I used, but feel free to swap out the veggies for whatever you have on hand or whatever your family enjoys!  Also, a few of the measurements I used roughly because I know what we like/don't like as much-and let's be honest I eyeballed it.  Here's what was used...

-1 package bow tie pasta
-1 small onion, chopped
-1/2 cup sour cream
-1 (10.75oz) can cream of chicken soup
-1-1 1/2 cups chopped ham
-1-1 1/2 cups shredded cheese 
-Saltine or butter crackers
-1/2 cup frozen peas
-1/2 cup frozen corn 


Begin by preheating the oven to 350 and boiling the pasta according to package directions to al dente, since this goes in the oven as well and nobody wants a mushy noodle in their casserole.  While that is going mix all the other ingredients except the crackers in a large bowl.


Once the noodles are done just drain them and mix those in as well.  Then pour into a greased 2-qt. baking dish and bake for 35 minutes.  (I recommend covering this.)


While this is baking crunch up some crackers for the topping!  After the 35 minutes remove the dish and top it with the crackers, then put it back in the oven uncovered for 5-10 mins until it's all golden and delicious like.


Leftovers never tasted so good.
