“I was looking for something different to do with leftover ham. I found pea soup & tetrazzini recipes. I don't like mushrooms, so I edited, altered & combined a few recipes to come up with this... it's probably closer to mac & cheese with meat than tetrazzini but oh well! Being lazy, I added about 6c baby spinach to make it a 1 dish meal. ;)”
