Creamy Noodle Casserole

I made this dish last week using leftover ham. When we sat down to eat, I didn't hear any objections at all! My daughter ate her serving in no time at all and then asked for more, and then more. When she finally had her fill, she said, "Mom, thank you for making that dinner; it was so good!" Now how often do you hear that from your children? For me, it's not very often. So when I do, I know that recipe is a keeper!

It's also nice that this is a one-pot-dinner. You just make this dish and you're set for dinner! And it comes together in about 15 minutes. Perfect for a busy weeknight.

Here's what you'll need:

1 (12 oz) pkg. egg noodles
1 (16 oz) pkg. frozen broccoli cuts
3 C. cubed or shredded ham
1 C. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 C. shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 C. butter or margarine
1/2 C. half-and-half cream
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a large pot, cook noodles in salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and ham; cook another 3-5 minutes. Drain; return to pot. Add remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted and mixture is heated through.

Quick, easy, delicious, and your kids just might thank you for making this too!
