I knew I was going to have plenty of Christmas ham left over so I tried to plan ahead and look for a dish to make with it. I found this ham tetrazzini recipe on www.allrecipe.com and am glad I did!
My family LOVES it! The recipe is super easy and quick to prepare.
6 ounces of spaghetti
3 quarts water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp chopped onion (I substituted onion powder instead.)
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup diced ham (I added more!)
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
2. While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. *Stir in onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
*Because I substituted onion powder, I just bypassed the cooking onion and went straight to adding the soup mixture, etc.
3. Stir in cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 cup water, and shredded cheese. Heat mixture until cheese melts, stirring often.
4. Mix in the ham, cooked and drained pasta and chopped parsley to saucepan; stir to combine. Cook until mixture is heated through, then serve.
