Ham & Pasta Skillet

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

This use to be one of my "fall back" meals back in the day of not knowing how to cook anything without some kind of Campbell's soup. Now I ususally make it once or twice a year after having a huge ham dinner and trying to find ways to use up the leftover ham.

1 can (10 1/4 ounces) of Campbells condensed broccoli cheese soup
1 cup of milk
1 TB spicy-brown mustard
2 cups broccoli flowerets or 1 package (10 oz) frozen broccoli cuts
2 cups of coarsely chopped, cooked ham
3 cups cooked medium shelled macaroni (about 2 cups dry)
favorite seasonings
parmesan cheese (optional)

Sometimes I substitute peas for the broccoli.

Prepare macaroni. In medium skillet, mix soup, milk, mustard & broccoli. Over medium heat, heat to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Add ham, macaroni, and seasonings. Heat through. Plate up, top with parmesan cheese.

The part about the Campbells soup cracked me up. Who doesn't love to cook with the stuff? It makes nearly everything yummy!
