My family loved it! I tweeked it just a bit since I didn't have any cream of mushroom soup. I substituted cream of celery & cream of chicken, since I was making alot! Also added onion salt instead of regular salt and topped it with shredded cheese. I will definately keep this one in my books!!!!

Sorry, but I didn't find this recipe to be anything special. We thought it was rather bland and boring. Probably will not make again.

My husband just loved this! Too bad my children ages 1-1/2 and 5 hated it! They couldn't even eat it. I will not be able to make this again. I thought it was ok.

Because the reviews said that this was kind of bland, I added pepper jack cheese and used leftover pork roast. I also used small shell pasta. I will make it again, maybe next time with smoked salmon. Also top with french fried onions for an added zest.

Maybe it was just me, but the soup mixture was not enough to coat the casserole ingredients. I might have added more chicken (not ham) and veggies, however. I added another can of cream of whatever soup I had on hand, and some more milk, and it was fine. Wasn't bland either. Maybe those of who who think it's bland need to add more soup. Not the low sodium kind, either.

This is a great base for a casserole. I used chicken instead of ham and cream of celery soup because it is what I had on hand. I added a couple handfuls of cheese (a pre-shredded "Mexican" blend), out-of-a-jar mushrooms,and sprinkled the top with parmesan cheese. I also sprinkled oregano on the casserole, but I do not recommend that, as it gives it a weird after taste.

My husband and I both loved this!!! I did make a few alterations...I used left over smoked turkey we had in the deep freeze, I used one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken, added onions and seasoning salt for taste. I also sprinkled in some shredded cheese and used Mrs. Grimes frozen egg noodles instead of the dried ones from off the shelf. We ate it over mash potatoes! I used

For those who don't like spicy, this recipe is perfect. I added more onion.
