I'm all about the easy dinner ideas. Through the years I've gotten pretty good about coming up with meals on the fly. No matter how great you are about planning meals, sometimes things just happen and you need to stray from the plan.
I told you a few weeks ago that I always have No Yolks (a healthy egg noodle alternative) on hand because they're so versatile and available in a variety of cuts for all types of recipes including Broad, Extra Broad, Fine, Kluski, Dumplings, and now Stir-Fry. No Yolks are high quality noodles that always cook up smooth, firm and fluffy and stay that way in your favorite recipes.
I use them all the time to throw a soup together in the slow cooker using leftovers. I also mentioned I'd have another recipe for you using No Yolks noodles. Well, today's the day!
Ham and Cheese go together like peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk, and bacon and eggs! Our Ham and Cheese Noodle Skillet is a one-pot dinner using one of our favorite combos. Of course, I always love a one-pot meal because they're so easy and clean-up from dinner is even easier! Being able to cook everything and serve it right in the pot or pan is pretty much #momgoals!
- 2 Tbsp butter
- ½ onion, diced
- 1¾ cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup half and half
- 6 oz No Yolks noodles
- ~1 pound cooked ham, chunked
- 2 cups shredded cheese (just about any mix will do)
- 1 cup frozen peas
- salt and pepper
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Cook onions until translucent, about 5 mins.
- Add ham, broth, half-and-half, and noodles to skillet and bring to a boil.
- Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until noodles are tender, about 8-10 minutes.
- Add in cheese and stir to combine.
- Add peas to skillet and cook until heated through, just a few minutes.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Top with fresh parsley and parmesan.
This recipe is a great way to use up leftover ham or even chicken. Of course, you can change it up with different veggies too, but I think peas and ham are great together.
We love using No Yolks noodles as a simple side. They cook up quickly and taste great with just a touch of butter.
There are so many fun uses for No Yolks noodles! They're perfect for creating new and unexpected dishes and sides, including Sriracha Cheesy Noodles, Noodles with Kale and Walnut Pesto, and these Creamy Garlic Bread Noodles!
