Creamy Ham Spaghetti

“This, my friends, is comfort food! This is my adaptation of a recipe originally by The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. Her original recipe calls for chicken instead of ham, which is also good. This is very like a tetrazzini. I have frozen this before baking, then thawed and baked with good results.”
