Creamy Noodles with Ham and Peas

Mom made this for "dinner" today, which turned out to be more of a mid-day meal. When I asked where she'd gotten the recipe, it turns out that it came off of a package of egg noodles. What I liked the most about it was it reminded me of a lunch meal that my host mom used to make for us while I was in Germany. Only difference I could find was there was no peas. Good recipe for when you want to use up some leftover ham from dinner the night before. Really yummy!!

Time: about 20 minutes

4 1/2 cups Market Pantry Wide Egg Noodles (about 1/2 pkg)
3 Tsp. butter or margarine
1 cup ham, diced
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms, larger pieces cut in half
2 Tbsp. diced onion
1 cup frozen peas
1 1/4 cup whipping cream
1/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

1. Bring 4-6 quarts of water to a boil, add salt to taste if desired. Add noodles and return to boil for 7-8 minutes or until noodles are tender, then drain.
2. While noodles are cooking, melt butter in large skillet. Add ham; cook and stir until lightly browned. Add mushrooms, onions and peas; cook about 4 minutes or until peas are hot and onions and mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally. Add cream; simmer about 2 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
3. Toss sauce with hot noodles and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with additional cheese, if desired.


  1. Oftentimes I find a winner recipe on the backs of the products I buy and this sure sounds like one of them. I could totally see us slurping up some noodles and creamy ham sauce. Sounds good. Hm...I wonder if I have any mushrooms...this might be good for tomorrow....
