Baked Ham, Cheese, and Pasta Casserole

Posted November 26, 2019 by Prairie Wife -

‘Tis the season for leftovers!

And it can be overwhelming to figure out what to do with them. Ham is something that we often have extras of during the holidays and while I love to use it to make Ham and Cheese Bundles, even those can get old.

I created this casserole out of things I had hanging around and it was such a big hit with my family (as in no leftovers at all) that I asked you on Instagram if you wanted the recipe. You responded YES, and so here is the recipe.

Baked Ham, Cheese, and Pasta Casserole
Prep Time:
5 min Cook Time: 12 min Bake Time: 15-20 min
