A few changes: I sauted chopped red onion with the chopped ham (in butter instead of oil) and used shredded mozzarella instead of cubed swiss. Also just drain the pasta don't rinse it.Fast easy and tasty! Read More

It tasted great where the cheese was but for some reason my cheese would not melt properly. It led to disappointment with my family. Read More

I loved how quick and easy this was but also thought it was bland. I assume the recipe didn't call for salt or any other seasoning because the ham should be salty enough. Instead of Swiss I would try some sort of bagged shredded cheese to save the step of dicing the Swiss. I would also add some sort of veggie like chopped broccoli. In this case I had to add some milk because it looked so dry and dumped a bunch of different seasonings like salt pepper Mrs. Dash and garlic powder. Read More

We all loved this - the melted stringy swiss cheese is great. I added bite size steamed asparagus to make it a one dish meal. Delicious! Read More

QUICK! Great way to use up some leftover ham! Hubby said its a keeper and surprizingly "Filling". I had some leftover Green beans to add for color....did add diced onions used the cellaphane swiss but added some fresh picarino parmesan into it...It smelled so great cooking! Read More

This sounds good. I think provolone cheese would be good if you switch it with the swiss Read More

VERY EASY. As a mother of a 6 month old I'm always looking for quick meals. I put milk and swiss cheese in with the ham after I cooked the meat let it melt then added some pepper and rosemary and then the mixture in with the noodles. Served with Asparagus. Will make again. Read More

Ive tried this two ways. 1.. following the recipe and 2... my way. I added red pepper flakes and garlic. Gives it a little kick and wakes up the Swiss cheese!:) Read More

This dish was amazing! Yesterday was my older brother's birthday a HUGE cheese and ham lover. When I made this I added mozzarella and provolone. When frying the ham I used butter I added half a diced onion chopped broccoli and some garlic. When mixing the ingredients I added some milk and sour cream to make it creamier. Read More

I like the ingredients in this but found it to be really dry and bland. The cheese was really stringy. I think my family would have liked it a bit more if it had been smooth and creamy. Might try again but will make cheese sauce first. Read More
