Ham and Cheese Bowties
Bow tie pasta and ham baked in a Colby cheese sauce.
This pasta salad is a perfect vehicle for leftover ham. Cheddar cheese, peas, celery, and pimento give this pasta salad a nice color and flavorful dimension.
Very good. I made some changes suggested by others - used dijon mustard and a little more pasta. I don't recommend leaving out the mustard like some had. Even if you don't care too much for mustard, it really adds a nice flavor that isn't too strong. I had cheddar and mozz cheese on hand so used that. My only grips are the sauce isn't as creamy as I would like and it's pretty fattening. Next time I will try some different cheeses and maybe a little less flour. Also, broccoli or peas would be a great addition like others suggest. But in all, a great recipe. My family loved it, it was fast and easy to make and I almost always have all the ingredients on hand. Will make this again (on occasion because of the fat & calories) as a fast, middle of the week meal with a salad and good crusty bread.
My husband and I really liked this. I used 1 1/2 cup mozzarella and a cup of an Italian cheese blend in place of the colby. I used 12 oz of elbow pasta and added peas and a dash of cayenne pepper. Will make again.
Boiled ziti mixed with Swiss cheese and fried ham to make a perfect, quick meal.
Not what you may be thinking, this is NOT ham mac n' cheese! This is just a simply wonderfully baked pasta dish with tasty ham. The pasta is put in the casserole dish dry, and it cooks in the oven!
Cream and ham with Parmesan and a touch of butter.
These little ham and Swiss cheese sandwiches will disappear in a flash!
