Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni

Cooking Directions

Add diced ham; cook and stir until ham pieces are slightly browned, about 5 more minutes. Stir cream of mushroom soup and milk into ham and onion, stirring until smoothly combined.

  1. This was a great recipe when I didn’t know what to cook! I adjusted to what I on hand. I used a pack of ham slices, a can of cream of chicken soup, 6 mushrooms sliced, 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 Monterey Jack with jalapeños. I added a mixture of different spices and seasonings. Turned out - Read more ...
  2. I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the recipe except for the macaroni. I only had one cup of cheddar cheese so I used some pepper jack for the second cup. It added a nice spicy bite to the dish! I ll definitely make this again!
  3. This was a huge hit with my guys. Doubled everything except the pasta because this seemed like a lot of pasta and it still seemed like it could have used more ham. I used large elbow macaroni and subbed Velveeta for the cheddar because I had some on hand that needed to be used up. - Read more ...
  4. Turned out great! Just stir fried broccoli in deprecate pan then added after instead of the frozen peas. Relish and super easy!
  5. Made this tonight and left out peas (sorry not a fan). I also doubled the recipe because of the macaroni I had left over. It's a great way to use up those Christmas ingredients that you normally might end up throwing away. Is it the BOMB? No. It's basic simple and tasty. I did use - Read more ...
  6. Made a white sauce instead because I don't like the condensed soup. Everything else stayed the same Great meal.
  7. Just OK. Too much pasta in relationship to sauce. Needs something to spice it up a bit.
  8. We love this recipe...It's quick and easy! I've even made it without ham for a quick pasta sauce. You can spice it up to your liking with lots of pepper or garlic while it's cooking.
  9. Very basic. Good but basic. Seemed to need a seasoning. I don't know spices I made the recipe exactly doubling the ham & peas as it seemed like it'd be alot of noodle if I didn't. Good thing! You need to. Again good basic filler recipe. Seems like it'd be good for a pickier eater - Read more ...
