Because of the delicate flavors in this dish, we preferred using a mild baked ham to a smoked one.

Recipe Ingredients for Ham-and-Asparagus Casserole

1 ounce wheat bread
8 oz (3 3/4 cups) uncooked egg noodles (NO YOLKS)
2 1/2 cups (1 1/2-inch) sliced asparagus
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup 1 % milk
1/2 cup half and half
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon brummel and brown spread
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
8 oz ham, cubed (about 1.5 cups)
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 oz asiago cheese, grated

Recipe Directions for Ham-and-Asparagus Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 450.

  2. Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 1/2 cup.

  3. Cook pasta in boiling water 7 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add asparagus; cook 1 minute. Drain.

  4. Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Place flour, thyme, salt, and pepper in medium bowl; gradually add milk and broth, stirring with a whisk until well-blended. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion; saute 4 minutes. Add milk mixture; cook until thick (about 4 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in juice. Combine the pasta mixture, milk mixture, ham, and parsley in large bowl; spoon into a 2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese.

  5. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden.
