Not your typical macaroni and cheese meal. Comfort food! A great dish to make using the leftover ham from a previous meal. Nice creamy texture with a tasty combination of onion, green pepper, and tomatoes. My family just loves it!

This was served for a bunco group after Easter....it was wonderful! Just the right amount of spice, creamy texture and the green peppers and tomatoes added a fresh element.

Not for me. Sauce was not smooth or creamy.
