Ham Noodle Casserole~Tasty Tuesday

This is what was for dinner last night!

It was a hit.  Very quick and relatively healthy. (It has broccoli!)

A little high in the caloric type area, but it's comfort food, so that isn't important, right?

One pan meal.  Fewer dishes cuz you'll be too full to mess with dishes!

Cubed ham - about 1/2# or a bit more

spiral pasta
2 cups broccoli
1 medium onion

!/2 Cup sour cream
!/2 Cup cottage cheese
1 Cup shredded cheddar (1/2 in the mixture and 1/2 on to)
1 heaping tbsp paprika
salt and pepper

In a dutch oven or soup pan, cook pasta with broccoli and onion until pasta is nearly done.
While that is cooking, cube your ham and set aside.

In the empty pan, mix sour cream, cottage cheese, 1/2 the cheddar and season.  To that, add ham and pasta mixture.  Stir to blend and top with other 1/2 cheese.

Bake at 325* for about 20 minutes or until cheese is totally melted and mixture is heated through.
I covered it before baking.

Here is what the inside looks like, oh it was so good.



  1. That is comfort food, alright! You gave me an idea for a similar version of that! (the broccoli wouldn't go over too well with the wee ones).

    Thanks, Jo!

    1. It has a lot of possibilities. I created this one on a cold snowy day and I have made it many ways. It's the sauce that makes it work. I change the spices to meet the meat or lack of. It's very good with a variety of vegetables.

  2. Never underestimate the magic of cheese! :D Looks yummy! Might as well try one of these days :D

    1. I don't want everyone to know this so shhhhhhhh but I believe I am addicted.

      "Hi, my name is Jo and I am a cheeseaholic."

      When that group meets, I'll have to go.
