“This casserole was first served to me 30+ years ago by my sis in law Kathy. It is a real good fast recipe as you can have this done in less than 40 minutes. Kids love this--adults too. It is perfect for busy moms on days when you have to run the kids here and there. Only 4 ingredients and super easy to put together. The 6 ounces of ham is Hormel chunk ham in the can like tuna comes in. The thing would not accept 1 can of Hormel chunk ham no matter how hard I tried.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare your casserole dish by buttering with the butter or spray with Pam (I butter).
  2. Cook noodles as per package.
  3. While noodles are cooking, chunk up the ham and add to your casserole dish.
  4. Drain noodles and place in casserole dish.
  5. Add 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Using 2 forks, kinda toss/mix together the noodles cheese and ham. Put a little extra cheese on top. Cover and pop in microwave 8 to 10 minutes, just until the cheese is nice and melted and the chunked ham is heated.
  6. You could put it in the oven too at 350°F for the same time, but I always just nuke it.
