Ham and Green Noodle Casserole

December 31, 2012

Ham and Green Noodle Casserole (14)

My very oldest, dearest friend, Janet Gutierrez shared this recipe with me.  When I say oldest, I don’t mean in age.  Janet and I have been friends since the 2nd grade and we are still great friends today.  I remember her Mom, Eleanor Adamson making this casserole when we were kids.  It is fast and easy – a great way to use leftover ham.  If the color of the green noodles bother you, regular noodles can be used.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

12 oz. uncooked green noodles, cooked and drained (You can use regular noodles or a mix of the two)

Cook noodles according to the package.  If using Spinach Fettuccine, once the water is boiling, it only takes 3 minutes to cook.  Regular noodles take longer.

3/4 cup sour cream                                                        

1/2 can cream mushroom soup                              

1 can cheddar cheese soup                                       

3/4 tsp. dry mustard    

1/2 tsp. garlic granules

I divided this recipe in two smaller casserole dishes.  I lined one with foil to prepare it for the freezer.  After adding the ham mixture, I tucked the excess foil around the edges.  This half was placed in the freezer, in the glass casserole pan, until it was frozen solid and then it was taken out of the pan.  When I thaw it, I will put it back in the same pan to cook it.

Bake covered at 350 degree for 30 – 40 minutes.

Top with French Fried Onion rings (canned).  Put it under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the onions.
