Ham and Pepper Casserole

Tonight's dinner was supposed to be a Denver omelette.  However, when I opened up the egg carton, there were only three eggs!  The ham was already out of the freezer, and I had already bought a green pepper for the omelette.  Hence, this casserole was born!

Look at that ooze!


Update: Matt ate half the pan!

Ham and Pepper Casserole

Ingredients:
3 cups cooked ham, cubed (I used ham steaks, but feel free to use leftovers!)
1 green pepper, cubed
1 8 ounce package cream cheese
1 cup milk
6 ounces egg noodles
1 Tbsp. chopped onion
1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp. parsley
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup french fried onions

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350.
Prepare egg noodles according to package directions.  Drain.
Melt down cream cheese and milk in a saucepan over medium heat.  Whisk until smooth.
Combine all ingredients  except for cheddar cheese and french fried onions in a greased casserole dish.
Mix well.
Top with cheddar cheese and french fried onions.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until top is bubbling.
Let set for 5 minutes.
Enjoy!
