  • Leftover Ham and Noodle Casserole recipe calls for noodles.  This can be elbow macaroni, wide egg noodles or whatever type of noodle or pasta you have in the cabinet. Just be sure to cook the noodles per package instructions, and it doesn't hurt to under-cook them.  Just be sure not to over cook since they will continue to cook in the oven.

  • There is no need to salt this casserole since the ham already has so much sodium.
