Rigatoni and Ham Casserole

What to do now that you have to finish up the ham. Kids really seem to love it. I really love this myself and it is something different from everything else when it comes to side dishes!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. It will take 20-25 minutes to bake. It makes 4 servings so if you have teenage kids, Double!


  • 2 quarts of water
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. oil (The oil and salt keep the pot from boiling over)
  • 3 cups Rigatoni or 1 3/4 cups Elbow Macaroni

In large bowl add:

  • 2 cups diced leftover ham
  • 4 oz. (1 cup) shredded cheddar

In medium saucepan, add all at once:

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine or butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 2 1/2 cups milk

Cooking constantly about 1 minute or until thick. Combine sauce with pasta mixture, add to 2 quart pan and toss;

  • 2 oz (1/2 cup shredded cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup potato chips
  • Paprika, if you would like

And it is ready to bake! Yea! And it is so good. I hope you like it! lol!
