There are ordinary casseroles and then … this delicious Layered Ham and Cheese Pasta Bake. It’s easy to make with some chopped ham, cheese, pasta, half and half and eggs.

We used penne, but you can substitute in whatever leftover cooked pasta you have on hand. Whole wheat pasta works well here too. Swiss cheese makes for a nice golden crust on top, but you can use mozzarella or cheddar too if you prefer.

And the golden crust on top is pure ambrosia! It’s just simple swiss cheese that bubbles and browns in the oven, our favorite part of the dish.

To get it out of the pan, you’ll need a spatula or cake server. A sprinkling of freshly chopped parsley is great for serving, and ketchup is definitely a fave by the mac and cheese crowd.
