Ham Bonaparte or My Favorite Casserole Ever

Ham Bonaparte Pasta Casserole from frugalanticsrecipes.com

If you Google ‘Beef Bonaparte’ you will find a delicious recipe made with ground beef.  When I was a little girl, my mom changed the meat to ham and “KAPOW!!” It became something altogether different and wonderful.

I ate way too much of this tonight.  There is so much to love about this casserole.  Ham and tomatoes make an odd pair, but with cream cheese, sour cream and lots of Cheddar cheese, it’s an amazing combination.  I have made this with gluten free noodles with great success.  Considering how much I love it, that’s a really good thing.
Ham Bonaparte: I could eat this every day of the week forever

  4. What brand of gluten free egg noodles do you use. I can not seem to find and packaged or boxed egg noodles to replace the wheat types. Would appreciate all information on brand and where to buy or a home made recipe. Thanks. Connilang@frontier.com
