Ham and Swiss Cheese Green Noodle Casserole

I used to make this casserole for my family whenever I had leftover ham. However, this casserole is so yummy, I actually purchased a couple of thick cut ham slices so I could make this for the blog. This is a very rich and creamy comfort food casserole dish that will satisfy ham and cheese lovers.

Ingredients:
1 16 ounce package of spinach noodles
2-3 cups of ham, cut into bite size pieces
8 ounces of Swiss cheese, grated
3 Tablespoons of butter
3 heaping Tablespoons of flour
1 quart of heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons pepper, or more to taste
2 1/2 teaspoons of dry ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put water on to boil in a large pot. Grate Swiss cheese and set aside. Cut ham into cubes and set aside. Once water starts to boil, add spinach noodles. Cook al dente. While noodles are cooking, prepare white sauce. Melt butter in a large saucepan, add flour to make a roux. Cook until butter has been absorbed in flour. Roux should be tight. Whisk in heavy cream. Add salt, pepper, dry mustard, onion powder and nutmeg. Bring to a boil and continue to whisk. Continue to have sauce at a low boil for 5 minutes or you will have a flour taste instead of a cream taste. Add ham and grated Swiss cheese. Drain noodles and add to creamy ham and cheese sauce. Bake in a 2 1/2 quart pan covered for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
