Ham and Swiss Cheese Spaghetti Bake-Annette's

Have some leftover Easter ham you need to use up? This recipe is PERFECT for that? Or do you just crave a creamy comforting concoction? You won't be disappointed with this casserole. It is all of the above.

This makes a HUGE deep dish lasagna pan worth BUT can very easily be cut in half. Also, if you want a lighter version, use whole wheat pasta, fat free sour cream, low fat cream of mushroom soup and low fat cheese.

The recipe will feed an army if you make it as is. It literally FILLS the pan to the brim. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350°. Cook spaghetti to package directions to al dente.

Add ham and veggies to spaghetti mixture 1/3 at a time and mix to incorporate. Add 2 1/2 cups of the cheese into the mixture as well.
