Dump-and-bake Ham Tetrazzini
"You don’t even have to boil the pasta or sauté the veggies before stirring together this dump-and-bake ham tetrazzini. It’s a simple take on classic comfort food, with just 10 minutes of prep! Why You’ll Love This Ham Tetrazzini Casserole: - Quick and Easy. For busy weeknight dinners, or for those evenings when you just don’t feel like cooking, it’s tough to beat the simplicity of a dump-and-bake dinner. The casserole comes together with just a few minutes of prep, since you don’t even have to cook spaghetti or saute mushrooms before popping it in the oven. As the pasta cooks in the dish, it releases starches that thicken the sauce, so you get this rich, creamy ham pasta bake without adding extra flour or butter to make a roux. - Affordable. Whether you use leftover ham from a holiday meal, or purchase diced ham from the meat section at your grocery store, this recipe takes advantage of inexpensive ingredients. - Family friendly. I have yet to meet a child who doesn’t love a creamy pasta dinner. Add some ham and fresh vegetables, and you’ve got a complete meal in one dish (and you don’t even have to think about the sides)! Feel free to adapt the ingredients to suit your family’s tastes, too. For instance, instead of the mushrooms, use broccoli florets or frozen peas."
