This is a great recipe to use up extra ham.
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 stick butter
1-2 cups cubed ham ( Can buy a chunck at the deli and cube it)
12- 16 oz package pasta of choice (I use small shell pasta)
12- 16 oz shredded swiss cheese
Saute onion in butter, add garlic and ham. (Use a big skillet)
Cook pasta till aldente or according to taste. Drain and add to skillet. Stir in 3/4 of the shredded cheese. Mix well. Top with remaining cheese. Cover skillet with lid till melted or you can put into a casserole dish, then top with remaining cheese and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, till chesse is melted.
