*Creamy Ham & Noodles*

Hello, today I'm posting Creamy Ham & Noodles. This recipe has been in our family for as long as I can remember. My grandmother use to make this sometimes. The original recipe didn't call for whipping cream or Parmesan cheese, I added that from looking on line at different Ham and noodle recipes. If you want to make it the old fashioned way, use 1 cup milk and no cream and omit the Parmesan cheese. Follow the rest of the recipe as is. This is very good and fits in the low budget categories. Also, I'm not sure about the amount of flour. You may need more. I usually just guesstimate:) Enjoy!

5 Cup wide egg noodles
1/4 Cup butter, Or Margarine
3 Tbls. Flour

½ Cup Milk
1 1/2 Cups Ham,Cooked & Chopped
1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese, Grated
1/4 Cup green onions, Thinly Sliced
1/4 Tsp. salt, or to taste
1/8 Tsp. pepper, or to taste

Cook noodles according to package directions. In the mean time, using a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and slowly add whipping cream and milk, mixing well. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add ham, cheese, onions, salt and pepper; heat through. Drain the noodles, add to ham mixture and heat through. If you want it to look a little fancy at the table, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of chives on the center top. Enjoy!
