Leftover Ham And Noodles

Recipe by  

"Wonderful way to use up that small amount of ham that won't feed the family, but just cannot be thrown out!!! It can be ready in 30 minutes, and is a family pleaser. I like to make this the day before, and let the flavors blend. Reheat, and serve with a green salad and hard rolls."

This was good and easy but very bland so I did a few things diffrently. I added lots of fresh garlic and salt pepper and a bay leaf. While the soup part was cooking I added the bone from the ham, to add flavor. My girls ate it with parm cheese on it and really liked it.

I used 12oz of noodles and it was enough for us.

Simple preparation - one pot and a nice change from all of the ham casseroles with cheese and cream soups in them. My son is allergic to dairy so this was perfect for him. And, he ate the vegetables (I added carrots, too) - tender but not soggy. Next time, I think I'll substitute broth from the ham for some of the water to add more flavor. I'll definitely make this again!

Excellent recipe for leftover ham. My son and husband loved it and it was easy to make. A nice change for leftover ham.

Basic recipe that needed help. I added some salt-free "zesty" blend, 8oz tomato sauce and 15oz drained diced tomatoes.

very average looking recipe so i added; which I think is the charm of this recipe. you can add what you feel and really it only helps. So, mine ended up a bit from the original recipe. I added 2 cans of chicken broth, carrots, and a good amount of a herbed spice blend. very nice, and very good after heating the second time around
