One of my husband's favorite foods is ham.  He just absolutely loves when I make a ham for dinner.  

And you know what?  I just love it, too ~ because making a baked ham with brown sugar glaze or my favorite maple crock pot ham is really super easy.  Truly, cooking a ham is about as easy as cooking gets.  Plus I get the bonus of getting ham leftovers to work with for days.

Given my husband's love for ham, I'm always looking for new ways to enjoy leftover ham.  Ham salad is a great option, but we also like to enjoy hearty ham casseroles for dinner, too.

Which led to the creation of this creamy Leftover Ham & Noodle Casserole.

Loaded with chopped ham, tender noodles, and veggies surrounded in a creamy cheesy sauce, it's one comfort-food dinner dish, for sure.

One night while staring at a pile of leftover ham trying to decide what to do with it for dinner, I thought back to a leftover turkey noodle casserole my 8-year-old daughter had loved so much.

Which got me thinking ~ Would the same creamy, cheesy casserole combination also work well for leftover ham?

So I decided to give it a whirl.

I'm happy to report, the result was a resounding success with both my 8-year-old daughter and with my husband, too.  They gobbled it up just as readily as they did the original turkey version, giving it a positive rating of two thumb's-up.

Not only do I love that my family really enjoyed this casserole, I also love that it's really easy to make.

Start by simply cooking some egg noodles according to their package directions.

While the noodles are cooking, combine chopped ham, thawed frozen mixed vegetables, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, shredded mozzarella, and some seasonings.

Then bake the casserole up until heated through and the cheese is melty.

The sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and melty cheese combine to create the beautifully tasty creamy element of this dish.  And creamy sure means the comfort food we all know and love.

Not only do I love that my family really enjoyed this casserole, I also love that it's really easy to make.

The salty ham, vegetables, and a touch of dried thyme bring wonderful flavor that pairs well with the creamy sauce.

It's an easy-to-prepare complete-meal casserole our family loves.
