Scarlett ate this like a champ! Who doesn’t love ham and cheese?!
1/4 lb wide egg noodles
1/2 chicken stock cube, crushed/chopped into a loose powder
2 Tbsp butter
2 1/2 Tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
1/2 cup frozen peas
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 oz sliced cooked ham, cut into strips (I cut up about 3 slices of polish ham)
salt and black pepper
Cook the pasta in boiling, lightly salted water according to instructions on the package.
Meanwhile, make the sauce. Melt the butter in a small pan, stir in the flour to make a paste, and gradually whisk in the milk, mustard, and stock cube. Stir in the peas and cook for 3 minutes on med/low.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese until melted. Add the ham, heat through, season, and toss with the pasta. This makes around 4 hearty servings. Sauce is freezer friendly!
